Doncaster North MP Ed Miliband and Richard Desmond, owner of The Health Lottery will visit The Conservation Volunteers Green Gym project in Doncaster on Thursday to celebrate more than £1.8m being awarded to 49 TCV projects across the UK.

They will meet The Conservation Volunteers at the project which engages with local people to offer outdoor physical activity through participation in community-based environmental projects.

The projects help volunteers overcome isolation, anxiety and loneliness, as well as benefitting the community.

The visit marks £87,932 that has been awarded to two Green Gyms accessible to volunteers from Doncaster, Sheffield and Barnsley by the People’s Health Trust, using funds generated by HealthRich through The Health Lottery.
