Gallan Head Community Trust receives £37,000 in funding.


Throughout January, Health Lottery Scotland is raising money for local good causes across Scotland. So far, Health Lottery Scotland has raised more than £10 million for local good causes.


Gallan Head Community Trust on the Isle of Lewis received investment of £37,000 from People’s Health Trust, using money raised through the Health Lottery Scotland.


The Gallan Head Regeneration Project will continue employing two support workers to help realise ideas for community projects, events and activities put forward by residents of Gallan Head, Isle of Lewis. These long-term posts will ensure that community plans and activities are successfully completed and that village improvement will continue in this very rural area. The progression and establishment of various community projects and activities for income generation, job creation and increasing social participation will contribute towards a sustainable and resilient community with increasing numbers of people contributing to community growth.


Megan Watney from Gallan Head Community Trust said: “Thanks to this funding, we have been able to bring the local community together to grow the area and increase social participation.”


Chris Lunn, Director of Health Lottery Scotland, said: “We are delighted that money raised by Health Lottery Scotland is supporting such an important local project.”


Local grass roots charities in Scotland will benefit from Health Lottery tickets sold from 1 January until 31 January. What’s more, during that time, for every £1 entry into a weekly lottery draw the player will automatically be entered into the monthly mega raffle taking place on 1 February 2019, with a guaranteed prize of £250,000.
