Wellbeing group boosted by lottery funds


A Leeds-based wellbeing group is celebrating today after being awarded £9,600 from The National Lottery Community Fund, the largest funder of community activity in the UK.

Yorkshire Well-Being Group will use the cash to help those at risk of leaving education or involved in crime to change their future. Workshops will focus on mindfulness and strategies to make better decisions. The workshops will run Monday to Thursday in Bradford/Thornbury and will be after school or at dinner time for those in education.

This new National Lottery funding will help anyone who has faced these challenges and we are looking for people to get involved.

National Lottery players raise over £30 million a week for good causes across the UK. The National Lottery Community Fund distributes a share of this to projects to support people and communities to prosper and thrive.  

Chair, Lynne Firth said: “This grant means that we can start to make a difference to the lives of those who need it the most. This will make a big difference to people’s lives.”

Anyone wishing to be involved can contact lynne.firth@aol.com.
