The shortlist of projects selected for this year's People's Millions campaign has been announced.

On 24 November, voting will begin in the Westcountry region. For three nights you will have the chance have your say on who wins up to £50,000 of National Lottery money. The Big Lottery Fund will also consider a grant of up to £50,000 for the runner up in the Westcountry region with the largest number of 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 make a lasting difference to those in their area through improvements to the neighbourhood.

You can see the shortlist for our region here.

The deadline for applications for this year's People's Millions is noon tomorrow, Friday 16 May.
