Get your hands on community funding

COMMUNITY groups around Northumberland could get their hands on extra funds with the help of the public.

The Lloyds Banking Group Community Fund is offering £5,000 each to two organisations that help to inspire, support and unlock the potential of young people.

But the choice of beneficiaries rests with the public in an online vote.

Groups going for the funds include the Morpeth Division Girl Guides and the Toby Henderson Trust.

Voting closes at midnight on Sunday.
