Bell Green Silver Surfers, Coventry

Simon says local charity has the X Factor.


Bell Green Silver Surfers aim to deliver weekly IT sessions for people aged over 60 at the Bell Green Community Centre in Coventry, so they are better able to keep connected with friends and family while socialising in the local community. Representatives from Bell Green Silver Surfers attended The Health Lottery Tea Party at the Savoy Hotel in London, hosted by Simon Cowell.


The Health Lottery Tea Party celebrated groups and organisations in neighbourhoods across Great Britain that are helping to make where they live an even better place.


The day showcased the incredible work that thousands of local charities funded through The Health Lottery are doing to reduce health inequalities. The event also celebrated over £100 million being raised through The Health Lottery for good causes.


Bell Green Silver Surfers is funded by People’s Health Trust with money raised through The Health Lottery in the West Midlands.


John Hume, Chief Executive of People’s Health Trust, said: “Thanks to players of The Health Lottery an incredible £100m has been raised for good causes.


“It was important to celebrate the amazing work local charities and community groups are doing in their neighbourhoods, which wouldn’t have been possible without this money.”


Bell Green Silver Surfers was one of over fifty charities attending the Tea Party, along with other supporters of The Health Lottery.


Anne Drysdale from Bell Green Silver Surfers said: “We had so much fun at the Tea Party, It was great to meet other charities doing similar work. None of it would have been possible without support from The Health Lottery.”
