The three charities celebrating the funding are:

Lincolnshire Traveller Initiative, based in Gainsborough, received £29,794 to deliver a range of lifelong learning activities, outings and trips to address social isolation and encourage integration in the local community.

Chris Lunn, director of HealthComplete CIC, said: “The projects are extremely valuable to a wide range of individuals across this region; we look forward to hearing more about how these initiatives are enabling people to live longer healthier lives.”
 
HealthComplete CIC has raised £986,235, through The Health Lottery, for health-related good causes in Lincolnshire.
