We are delighted to have just launched a partnership with local award winning charity, Sunbeams. Cleator Moor born and bred Annie Mawson and her team of specialist musicians deliver Music Therapy to adults and children suffering from mental and physical disabilities in 65 venues throughout Cumbria each month. Planning permission has been granted for Sunbeams’ very own purpose built centre at Redhills near Penrith, however almost £1.3m still needs to be raised to make this a reality.

The Blues Lotto will donate a percentage of the income raised each month from members who have joined our weekly draw using Sunbeams application forms. Please download your copy. Membership payments can be made at various intervals by standing order or annually by cheque and debit card.
