Volunteer group Mercer House open the doors to community hub following People’s Health grant.


Accrington group, Mercer House 1842 Ltd celebrated a grant of £36,564 thanks to money raised through The Health Lottery in the North West.


The project ran for one year to establish a group of volunteers who will then run community activities for local people at the Arthur Wilson Centre in the isolated community of Clayton le Moors near Accrington.


Looking back at the project, Alison Hodges says: “This funding enabled us to open the doors of our community centre to more and more people with great ideas. Seeing those ideas take off and watching new friendships being made would not have happened without the help from money raised through The Health Lottery.”


Chris Lunn, The Health Lottery in the North West spokesperson, said: “The funds raised through The Health Lottery in the North West are changing and improving lives. It was clear that supporting this important group in Wallasey would have a great benefit to local children and families. To date, over £100 million has been raised through The Health Lottery for good causes across Great Britain, of which over £8.8 million has been raised for the North West. We hope to make even more for good causes when Health Lottery North West opens in September.”
