More than £150,000 in National Lottery cash was handed out to ten projects in South Holland and the Deepings in 2016.
These included £9,800 to St Bartholowmew’s Primary School, West Pinchbeck, for fitness equipment and special activities, £7,800 to Gedney Dyke village hall for central heating and £3,500 to Long Sutton Outreach to fund activities for dementia sufferers and their carers.
These projects – and any other that has ever received National Lottery Funding – have a chance of winning a further £3,000 if the public gets behind them and votes them into top place in the National Lottery Awards 2017.
Among local projects/organisations receiving lottery cash in the past are Spalding’s Ayscoughfee Hall Museum, Welland Yacht Club, Glen Park at Surfleet, Scarlet Community Music Club and Holbeach and Fenland Gymnastics Club.
You can nominate your favourite good cause via Twitter by tweeting @LottoGoodCauses, naming your suggested project, or call 0207 293 3399.
Projects that are nominated must complete the National Lottery Awards 2017 entry form. Shortlisted projects will then compete in one round of public voting later in the year.
John Barrowman, who presents the National Lottery Awards Show, said: “The National Lottery Awards are a fabulous celebration of the UK’s favourite lottery-funded projects as voted for by the public.
“The awards rightly put the focus on ordinary people doing extraordinary things with National Lottery funding, whose efforts go such a long way and are indeed changing lives.”
