The People’s Projects gave you the chance to decide how National Lottery funding can make a difference in the West Midlands. Five good causes, all hoping to improve their local area, were competing for your vote.
Here they are:
Rhythm For Dementia - Drumming Together in Herefordshire
The BIG Rushall OPERA – Older People Enjoy Regular Activity
The Inspirational Cafe for Aspirational Young People
The New Leaf Employment Pilot
Villa Cross Soup Kitchen
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 West Midlands on Wednesday 16 March at 6pm to find out which three projects will win up to £50,000.
