The deadline for applications to The People’s Millions is fast approaching.
If you need £50,000 for your community The People’s Millions is for you. The Big Lottery Fund is looking for projects that will improve local places or the lives of people in the community.
This year there are four awards of up to £50,000 on offer in each of the 19 ITV regional news areas across the UK.
People will get the chance to vote for those projects they want to see funded in the region, when they are screened on the ITV regional news between 25 and 27 November. In your region 4 projects will win an award following the public vote run by ITV television, with a fifth award going to the runner up that receives the most votes.
Last year across the four nights of voting, each area received over 27,000 votes.
Projects can include:
· Projects to make the local environment cleaner, safer or greener
· Improving the local natural environment
· Improving the design, appearance or accessibility of local amenities
· Providing opportunities or facilities for enjoying the local environment or local amenities
