Community Ventures worked with its stakeholders and tenants to help celebrate 70 years of the NHS. Tea Parties were held in each our LIFT areas in July: Leeds, Durham & Tees, Barnsley, Doncaster, Southern Derbyshire, Greater Nottingham, Nottinghamshire and Leicester. The events were well attended and supported by each local community, bringing together various groups, charities, schools and health service providers and blue light services to help celebrate the NHS.
Raffles and events on the day helped in raising funds for local charities including: Yorkshire Ambulance Service, North Air Ambulance, St. Gemma’s Hospice and Black Health Initiative to name a few and bringing a total to date in excess of £700 across all LIFTCos. Events were organised by our tenants Community Health Partnerships, with local representatives from the Community Ventures team going along to support each of the events.
Well done to everyone involved, a great achievement in community engagement and raising the funds for local charities – looks like a good time was had by all too!
