Evening Post’s ‘Heart of the Community’ Award

Posted on - 17th November, 2009 - 6:34pm | Author - | Posted in - Business, Charities, Competitions

HeartThe Lancashire Evening Post is offering up to £4,000 in grants to community organisations this Christmas.

The local newspaper has £2,000, £1,000 and two awards of £500 to give away to deserving charities and other organisations who are at the heart of the local community.

Organisations that can enter include schools, charities, community groups, sports clubs and societies.

The award is in conjunction with Barclays. It’s very easy to enter, just email and state why you’re nominating your organisation, what you’d do with the money if you won and what your organisation does.

Or you can do it the old fashioned way and write to Heart of the Community, Lancashire Evening Post, Oliver’s Place, Fulwood, Preston, PR2 9ZA

Closing date for applications is November 20th 2009, so get writing! The entries will be judged by Barclays and Lancashire Evening Post readers (I sense a poll coming on!).

Well worth entering if you’re one of the organisations above and great to see Preston’s local newspaper doing something for the local community.
