People's Millions deadline for entries - 13 May 2013
Dear Mr Jones
As you may be aware, the Big Lottery Fund and ITV are giving the public a chance to vote for the community projects they want to receive good cause funding. We 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.
Each night for a week in November, those who make the best applications will battle it out on prime time ITV regional news for the public vote. Whether or not they succeed, the competition represents a great opportunity to mobilise support and publicity behind a local cause.
The deadline for applications is 13 May 2013 and I encourage you to get groups in your constituency to fill out the simple entry form online at www.peoplesmillions.org.uk or contact the Big Advice Line on 0845 0 10 11 12. In the past, approximately half of all groups entering the competition have not been funded by us before. For further information please visit www.peoplesmillions.org.uk
