The People’s Projects gave you the chance to decide how National Lottery funding can make a difference in the East Midlands. Five good causes, all hoping to improve their local area, were competing for your vote.
Here they are:
Ignite Futures Ltd - Community Curiosity Labs
Charnwood 20:20 - Healthier, happier young people!
Oak Tree Conservation Group - Revitalise the people of Oak Tree Heath
Leicester City of Sanctuary - Stepping Stones
Learning for the Fourth Age - The Power of Stories
The People’s Projects is a joint venture between ITV and the Big Lottery Fund. The three organisations which receive the highest number of votes will receive up to £50,000 each. The remaining two organisations from each region may receive up to £5,000 each. The process is independently adjudicated by Electoral Reform Services.
Watch ITV News Central in the East Midlands on Wednesday 16 March at 6pm to find out which three projects will win up to £50,000.
