Name your favourite project

NORTHUMBERLAND residents are being called on to nominate their favourite Lottery-funded project for recognition in The National Lottery Awards.

More than £5million was invested in good causes across the county by the organisation during the 2009/10 financial year.

And it is encouraging these projects, and any group that has received Lottery funding over the past 16 years, to enter the awards.

There will be the chance to win £2,000 and receive recognition on television.

Rebecca Gowrley of The National Lottery Awards said: “The awards recognise how Lottery-funded projects put money to good use and celebrate the people behind the projects who work so tirelessly to make their organisations a success.”

The National Lottery Awards have seven categories: Sport, Heritage, Arts, Environment, Health, Education and Voluntary/Charity.

For more information about the competition, including how to enter, telephone 0207 960 6828 or visit Entries must be received by 5pm on Friday, February 18.
