We are calling on all our family and friends to help SNAPS secure £63,000 of National Lottery funding by voting for us in this year’s The People’s Projects.
Please show your support and vote for SNAPS by midday on Friday 26th May via this link.
SNAPS is one of five groups in Yorkshire in the running for a share of almost £250,000 of funding. If successful, SNAPS will use the money to fund a whole year of support at one our sites! That means more services for you are families!
The People’s Projects not only delivers vital grants to the heart of UK communities, but also raises awareness of the incredible work of the 95 shortlisted community groups vying for your vote. Back after a 3-year break, The National Lottery Community Fund, ITV, UTV and the Sunday Mail (in Scotland) have teamed up to give the public a chance to decide how National Lottery funding should be put to good use in their local area.
In each region, the three projects with the most public votes will receive grants of up to £70,000. This funding will help make a real difference to people’s lives, particularly in these difficult times. The runner’s up in each region will be offered up to £10,000 towards their project, bringing the total funding up for grabs for communities across the UK to over £4 million.
SNAPS will be featured on ITV Calendar from 6pm on Friday 19th May, so please do tune in or set your recorder to see SNAPS in action!
Voting is open and if you haven’t already please vote here: https://www.thepeoplesprojects.org.uk/projects/view/snaps
Lucy Owen, Chief Executive at SNAPS, said:
“The People’s Projects has given us an amazing opportunity to raise awareness and support for our work and, with your help, secure this additional much-needed funding. If we win, our project will make a real difference to our local community. These funds could help to fund a whole year of SNAPS’ services at one of our sites and allow us to support even more children and families who need us. We now need local people to get behind us, to show their support and vote for SNAPS to receive these vital funds.”
David Knott, Chief Executive of The National Lottery Community Fund, said:
“The People’s Projects delivers much-needed funding to the heart of communities and showcases the incredible efforts of hard-working projects across the UK. The short-listed groups are truly inspirational, each delivering life-changing support to their community in different ways. It is now time for the public to have their say in how vital National Lottery funding is used in their area to make a difference to people’s lives, particularly in these challenging times.”
Since it started in 2005, The People’s Projects has awarded around £45 million to over 1,000 good causes.
Voting closes at noon on Friday 26 May 2023.
