Winners from The People's Millions have been announced. But there's also a bonus prize and a runner up will get a cheque for £43,000.

This goes to A Heart for Duns and their bid to turn their old Volunteer Hall into a working theatre.

Congratulations to everyone who took part in the Peoples Millions and we thank all of you who were involved.

The People's Millions: Who got the most votes on Wednesday?

It's the final day of our very popular Peoples Millions!

It's the time of year when ITV Border joins forces with the BIG Lottery Fund to offer up to £50,000 to projects which improve the lives of people in their neighbourhoods.

All this week, we've been featuring two projects going head to head in appealing for your votes and funding from money raised by the National Lottery for good causes. There'll also be a bonus award for the runner-up with the highest number of votes.

Well, last night we featured the last two groups - both from the Scottish Borders. They were:

Nomad Beat in Peebles is a music group and it's into Breaking Sound Barriers. It wants to be able to allow more people to play music - regardless of age or disability. It says music is therapeutic. It helps concentration and co-ordination and is great for team-building.

Meanwhile in Duns, a Heart for Duns wants to create a community theatre and cinema in the old volunteer hall. To put on a proper show, they need a proper stage - and some decent lighting equipment. It's a project they say that would further bring the town together.

So who got the most votes between the two? Fiona Armstrong's been following the Peoples Millions vote all week:

People's Millions: Who got the most votes on Tuesday?

It's the third day of our very popular Peoples Millions!

It's the time of year when ITV Border joins forces with the Big Lottery Fund to offer up to £50,000 to projects that improve the lives of people in their neighbourhoods.

All this week, we've been featuring two projects going head to head in appealing for your votes and funding from money raised by the National Lottery for good causes. There'll also be a bonus award for the runner-up with the highest number of votes.

Well, last night we featured the second two groups - both from Cumbria. They were:

The Heathlands City Project outside Carlisle want to be able to extend the services it offers to at-risk adults and those with disabilities. That means opening a place in Carlisle city centre - where they can offer more training and activities to disadvantaged people.

Windermere Replay, meanwhile, want to restore an old playground on the shores of Lake Windermere. This community group hopes to improve the environment here at Millerground - and give local children the chance to jump for joy in their new lakeside play area.

So who got the most votes between the two? Fiona Armstrong's the girl in the know:

Lines are now open for Day 3 of voting in The People's Millions competition.

Today in the ITV Border region Breaking Sound Barriers goes head to head with Duns Community Theatre.

A grant of up to £50,000 is up for grabs for the winner. The other project is still in with a chance of winning National Lottery cash if it gets the highest number of runner-up votes.

The People's Millions is a long-running collaboration between ITV and the Big Lottery Fund. We want to help projects that capture the public's imagination, inspire local people to get involved and to make a lasting difference to those in their area through improvements to the neighbourhood.

People's Millions: Who got the most votes on Monday?

It's Day Two of our very popular Peoples Millions!

It's the time of year when ITV Border joins forces with the Big Lottery Fund to offer up to £50,000 to projects that improve the lives of people in their neighbourhoods.

Every night until Wednesday, we're featuring two groups going head to head in appealing for your votes and funding from money raised by the National Lottery for good causes. There will also be a bonus award for the runner-up with the highest number of votes.

Last night we featured the first two groups. They were:

Gretna Community Sport want to provide more sporting facilities for young people locally. Football is one sure way of getting youngsters off that sofa and out on the field. But this group needs equipment and funding for buses, so they can travel to games.

Then there's Thornhill and the Wallace Hall Academy and they'd like to develop their local Whapples Orchard to create paths and landscape a muddy field - in short, they want to grow the place and make it a focal point for young and old in the community.

So, who managed to get the most votes last night? Fiona Armstrong is an old hand at the People's Millions.
