The Health Lottery will be raising money for good causes in Peterborough and Cambridge during the week beginning Sunday January 21 – and it needs your support.
Each week one lucky area benefits from Health Lottery proceeds and there are draws every day from Tuesday to Saturday. This week it is Peterborough and Cambridge’s HealthCommit Community Interest Company’s (CIC) turn.
Since its first Health Lottery draw in March 2012 HealthCommit CIC has raised over £1.5 million for community groups in the area, with more than £95 million being raised nationwide.
Past projects have included Peterborough Association for the Blind (PAB), which delivers a series of social and physical activities for blind and partially sighted people to address social isolation and Huntingdonshire Volunteer Centre, who deliver opportunities for older people who are isolated to get out and meet people.
Larger charities and organisations, such as Royal Voluntary Service, have also benefitted from the funds raised by HealthCommit CIC.
