Supporting Broxburn United Sports Club Trust.


Broxburn United Sports Club Trust are celebrating receiving a grant from People’s Health Trust of £36,810, using money raised by The Health Lottery in Scotland.


This two-year project is the continuation and development of an existing group delivered by the charity Broxburn United Sports Club Trust. The group will continue to provide activities and opportunities for social interaction and sports for people over 50, living in Broxburn and Uphall, as well as surrounding areas in West Lothian.


Activities will include a walking group, a group riding adaptive bikes and new age kurling. The intention is to reduce social isolation by allowing participants to remain active and engaged with the wider community.


Chris Lunn, spokesperson for The Health Lottery in Scotland, said: “The funds raised through The Health Lottery in Scotland are changing and improving lives. It was clear that supporting Maryhill Integration Network would have a great benefit to the local community. To date, over £100 million has been raised through The Health Lottery for good causes across Great Britain, of which £9.2 million has been raised for Scotland. We hope to make even more for good causes when Health Lottery Scotland opens in January 2019.”


Health Lottery Scotland is benefitting from Health Lottery tickets sold for all draws being held between 1 January and 31 January 2019. You can buy Health Lottery tickets in advance for these draws online at www.healthlottery.co.uk or from more than 32,000 local retailers nationwide including The Post Office, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, ASDA, Morrisons and WH Smith.
