Village SOS, The People’s Millions and more
Lots of great news is tumbling out of the Big Lottery Fund at the moment with plenty of opportunity for people to get enthusiastic and involved in local projects. On Wednesday we announced the 28 projects shortlisted by the Village SoS programme. Each could secure up to £400,000, link up with an entrepreneur and feature on the BBC next year. Take a look at this list to see why the range and variety of projects is causing such excitement among those interested in rural issues.
It’s almost time for this year’s People’s Millions awards as well. Voting begins on 23 November but in the meantime the shortlisted projects have been announced. There’s a brilliant website through which you can take a look at who will be fighting for votes in your area and see what the projects are saying about why they should be the lucky recipients of up to £50,000 of BIG cash this year.
