HealthLevel Community Interest Company (CIC) is raising money for health-related good causes in North Yorkshire through The Health Lottery. which runs five weekly draws.

HealthLevel CIC’s first Health Lottery draw was held in November 2011 and since then more than £1,150,028 has been raised so far for the local community.

Using money raised by HealthLevel 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 in communities with great ideas to make their communities even better.

Past projects have included the Selby Community Cinema to deliver cinematic events for children, older people and the general public in Selby. Larger charities and organisations, such as Dementia UK, Carers Trust and The Conservation Volunteers, have also benefitted from the funds raised by HealthLevel CIC.

The Health Lottery scheme manages 51 society lotteries that operate in rotation and each represents a different geographical region of Great Britain. They raise money for health-related good causes within each of their individual community areas.

By supporting local health causes, The Health Lottery is helping to make a real difference every week to thousands of people across Great Britain. More than £83 million has been raised in total through The Health Lottery and with public support this figure will continue to increase.

Tickets are priced £1 and players can find out the winning numbers through the TV draw shows exclusively on Channel 5 at around 9.55pm every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday night.
