David Davis MP encourages local organisations to apply to compete for community project funding. The Big Lottery Fund and ITV are giving the public a chance to vote for the community projects they want to receive funding. A total of £3.8 million is available in 2013, they will be awarding up to £50,000 to 76 projects across every region of the UK to charitable projects which inspire, involve and improve their local community. For a week in November, those who make the best applications will battle it out on prime time regional news for the public vote.
Of this opportunity David Davis MP said: “The People’s Millions offers a great opportunity for local voluntary and community groups to gain funding for their project, and to achieve a greater awareness and support via the televised competition. Haltemprice and Howden has a great record of successful Lottery Fund bids through the Heritage Lottery fund and I would encourage local organisations to apply for this funding through The People’s Millions to continue this great tradition of successful Lottery Funding.”
