Another grant found it’s way to a worthy cause recently, thanks to Calderdale Cares Lottery. The Halifax Friendship Group gathered on the Shay Stadium pitch on Sunday 18th September, to collect their £500 cheque, helping them to continue supporting vulnerable people.

Convening at Halifax Central Library every other Monday, The Friendship Group provides a welcoming, open environment, where people struggling with loneliness can enjoy tea, cakes, and peer group support. Group members also enjoy socialising through regular leisurely day trips and visits to the theatre.

Lottery Manager Richard Watmough commented, “We’re delighted to make a contribution to such a worthy organisation and wish them every success. They’re making a great difference to peoples’ lives.”
