The project will all the Dalbeattie community free, easy to access, good quality gym equipment. Allowing us to improve our general health and well being throughout the community. The equipment works by either being non weight bearing or using your own weight as resistance, this allows anyone of any age the use of the equipment. It is positioned in the local park to encourage social interaction and use of our existing local facilities.
People’s Postcode Lottery is a charity lottery, where players play with their postcodes to win cash prizes while raising money for good causes. As a charity lottery, 50p from every £2 ticket goes to support charities and good causes across England, Scotland and Wales, including People’s Postcode Trust. People’s Postcode Lottery believes in supporting local communities so the money raised stays local to players.
