Still time to try for Lottery cash

Time is running out for readers to nominate their favourite local charities and good causes for this year’s National Lottery Awards.

The awards shine a light on the lottery-funded organisations changing communities and transforming lives. More than 370,000 National Lottery grants have been awarded since 1994. There are literally thousands of lottery-funded projects across the UK deserving of recognition.

Projects making it to the final of the awards will be recognised at a star-studded event broadcast on BBC One in the autumn. More than three million people tuned in last year. They will also have a chance to win a £2,000 cash prize.

The deadline is Monday March 12. So we urgently want to hear from anyone that knows of a local National Lottery-funded project that deserves some recognition.
