Simon says local charity has the X Factor.
Tower Power is a project, which will address anti-social behaviour and social isolation experienced by residents of the Tower Estate in Lincoln. By running weekly activity sessions for children and adults, Tower Power will build community spirit and cohesion. The project is supported by Green Synergy who attended The Health Lottery Tea Party at the Savoy Hotel in London, hosted by Simon Cowell.
The Health Lottery Tea Party celebrated groups and organisations in neighbourhoods across Great Britain that are helping to make where they live an even better place.
The day showcased the incredible work that thousands of local charities funded through The Health Lottery are doing to reduce health inequalities. The event also celebrated over £100 million being raised through The Health Lottery for good causes.
Tower Power is funded by People’s Health Trust with money raised through The Health Lottery in the East Midlands.
John Hume, Chief Executive of People’s Health Trust, said: “Thanks to players of The Health Lottery an incredible £100m has been raised for good causes.
“It was important to celebrate the amazing work local charities and community groups are doing in their neighbourhoods, which wouldn’t have been possible without this money.”
Mary Hollis Green Synergy said: “We had so much fun at the Tea Party, It was great to meet other charities doing similar work. None of which would be possible without support from The Health Lottery."
