charities and community groups across Sheffield are being encouraged to bid for a slice of an £18,000 prize fund.

Collette Brittain, chief executive officer of Natwest Sheffield, said: “Giving the public the chance to vote for the award winners will ensure these funds go to the organisations local people value the most.”
