tackling health inequalities in The East Riding and North Lincolnshire
North East Lincolnshire charities receive thousands of pounds funding

Two local groups in North East Lincolnshire have received a share of £50,166 funding.
 
Using money raised by HealthWin CIC, through The Health Lottery, grants have been awarded by People’s Health Trust through Active Communities, a funding programme which invests in local people and groups.
 
The two groups that received the funding include:

Favour Foundation Ltd, based in East Marsh, received £33,748 to provide new activities for residents including a skills builder drop-in that supports adults and helps to improve their reading and writing skills.

One Voice Ltd received £16,418 to deliver a weekly rock school workshop, providing equipment and qualified musicians to develop pupils’ skills and abilities. The project will increase confidence and self-esteem and a planned performance event will showcase the pupils’ achievements.

Chris Lunn, director of HealthWin CIC, said: “The projects are extremely valuable to a wide range of individuals across this region; we look forward to hearing more about how these initiatives are enabling people to live longer healthier lives.”
 
HealthWin CIC has raised £818,676, through The Health Lottery, for health-related good causes in East Riding and North Lincolnshire.
 
John Hume, chief executive of People’s Health Trust, said: “We are delighted to be investing in these local organisations with great ideas to make their communities even better places to grow, live, work and age.”
 
Active Communities is for community groups and not-for-profit organisations’ with an income of less than £350,000 a year that are seeking investment of between £5,000 and £50,000 a year, for projects lasting up to two years.
