We’re calling on Sheffield people to nominate their favourite Lottery-funded projects for The National Lottery Awards 2011, an annual search for the favourite Lottery-funded projects and recognise the dedication of the people behind them. Lottery players raise £28m a week for projects that make a difference to people, places and communities.
The awards have seven categories, each reflecting the main areas of funding: arts, education, environment, health, heritage, sport and voluntary/charity.
Projects that make it to the finals will receive national recognition at a star-studded event on BBC One later this year and get a chance to win a £2,000 cash prize.
See www.lotterygoodcauses.org.uk. Entries must be received by 5pm on Feb 18.
