Tribe of Doris Heroes group supports women from all backgrounds.

Tribe of Doris are celebrating receiving a grant of £34,961 from People’s Health Trust, using money raised by The Health Lottery in the South West.

This two-year project will provide weekly activities for women aged 18-60 from many different cultural backgrounds. Taking place in the St Jude’s, St Paul’s and Montpelier areas of Ashley; an inner-city ward of Bristol, the project aims to support women to meet up on a regular basis.

There will be a programme of events and activities the women can enjoy including yoga and then drum, dance, song or craft activities followed by lunch. Every three months the group will meet to decide upon future activities and individuals can have their say in developing the project.

Chris Lunn, the spokesperson for Health Lottery South West, said: “We are delighted that money raised through The Health Lottery in the South West is supporting such important local projects.” Already, over £9.4 million has been raised for Health Lottery South West, which helps to make an outstanding difference for these good causes groups.

Between 1 November and 30 November 2018, Health Lottery South West will benefit from Health Lottery sold for all draws. You can buy Health Lottery tickets in advance for these draws online at or from more than 32,000 local retailers nationwide including The Post Office, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, ASDA, Morrisons and WH Smith.
