BIG: Community groups across the country have less than 3 weeks to beat the deadline and enter The People’s Millions TV contest to secure the chance to win a Lottery award of up to £50,000 to improve their local area. Community groups will need to enter the contest by the deadline of 12 noon on 15 May 2009.
Now in its fifth year, the contest is a partnership between the Big Lottery Fund (BIG) and ITV, which gives the public the chance to choose which local projects receive lottery funding. This year the contest will make 69 awards of up to £50,000 across the ITV regions for projects that will enhance local facilities or help people to enjoy their local area.
