In the first few weeks following the launch of Winsby Community Lottery, more than 100 people have signed up to play with more than £5000 already earmarked for good causes in the area.
This is an opportunity for residents to support wholly local good causes and stand the chance of winning the £25000 jackpot and other cash prizes.
Players have a 50 to one chance of winning one of the prizes, which range from the £25,000 jackpot to three extra tickets.
The first draw takes place on Saturday 8 May 2021, with 60p from every £1 ticket going to local charities and good causes. With nearly 30 charities and good causes already registered with the site, there’s plenty of options for you when it comes to choosing a charity to support.
From North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group:
There is a lot of information on the internet about health and care but knowing what to trust can be overwhelming.
This is why a new web portal has been developed in North East Lincolnshire with a whole range of resources to help local people plan ahead and tackle difficulties or concerns before they turn into a crisis.
The new website came about because local residents told us that health and social care is an area they find confusing and often only look for help when they are in a crisis.
The website offers up-to-date local resources and reliable national information and advice for people who want to take steps to improve their health and wellbeing or find support for health conditions and everyday living.
Livewell is a bright, accessible website that aims to make it easy for people to find the advice, information and support they need without going around the houses. There is also information on what to do if you are concerned about someone else’s wellbeing, interactive sections on living with dementia or a sensory impairment and a link into the new social prescribing portal for North East Lincolnshire which puts people in touch with practical support to help them overcome emotional or social difficulties that have come about as a result of health conditions.

If ever there was a time to take on an apprentice it is now. Give your organisation’s fundraiser an extra set of hands and bag up to £4,000 in employer cash grants.
May seem too good to be true? But this “no strings” offer is the Chancellor’s Plan for Jobs and a pathway out the economic mire left in the wake of the pandemic. It also presents a great opportunity to Third Sector organisations trying to re-build.
If you need a fundraising apprentice then this is your golden opportunity, so don’t miss out!
We launched our new Fundraiser apprenticeship during National Apprenticeship week and we have had a phenomenal response from charities across Lincolnshire, Yorkshire and the Humber.
Our first two apprentices have already started at two charities in North East Lincolnshire and we are recruiting for three other organisations at the moment. To ensure quality, we will only working with a maximum of 20 organisations each year so if you want to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity then now is the time as the incentives end on 30 September 2021.
So you get an idea of costs here’s an example:
Have a look at our ready reckoner to see what it would cost you if you employed a fundraiser apprentice and paid them the National Minimum wage for 30 hours per week for the duration of the apprenticeship (21 months).
*Year 2 is for 9 months There is no Employer NIC payable for apprentices. NMW rates based on April 2021 but a subject to increase
The only other cost is £400 contribution towards the training which is waived if the apprentice is aged 16 to 18 and you have less than 50 employees. To help with your cashflow we will not invoice you for this until you have been paid your first cash grant after the apprentice has been in post for 3 months.
My name’s Melissa and I’m working on an international dance project called People Power Partnership (PPP) as part of the Grimsby Creates programme. It’s a fantastic opportunity for 8 young adults (aged 18-25) from NE Lincs to work with 14 other partners across Europe to create and perform a hip-hop dance piece.
