Health Lottery South East
Health Lottery South East has raised almost £11 million for grassroots causes in the region. This society lottery was formed from former CICs HealthCourage, HealthShape, HealthSound, HealthStrong and HealthWish. It covers Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Hampshire, Surrey, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, West and East Sussex, and the Isle of Wight. The first Health Lottery South East draw took place on 31 July 2018.
Funds raised through Health Lottery South East have addressed issues such as mental health, head injury rehabilitation and recovery, deafness, and support for disabled people and their carers. We have also supported endeavours as diverse as the creative arts, lunch clubs and rape crisis services. Recipients have included:
- £39,977 to Full House Theatre Company, who run arts and theatre activities for young people in Bedfordshire
- £22,209 to Para Dance UK, who run wheelchair dance activities for wheelchair users in Watford
- £37,820 for Disability Pride Brighton, an annual pride celebration run by and for people with disabilities living in Brighton and Hove
