Play projects up for People’s Millions’ awards – vote today and on Wednesday.

25 Nov

Two different play projects – one in Bristol, the other in London – have made it through to the final of the ITV/Big Lottery Fund People’s Millions competition this week.

Bristol Playbus is competing for the £50,000 award in the West Country East run-off today. Please call 0871 626 88 94 before midnight to vote.

London Play is competing for the £50,000 award in London on Wednesday, 27th November. Please check the People’s Millions website on Wednesday for the number to call.

In these difficult times for play services, including play charities who are finding fundraising increasingly difficult, it would be a boost, not just for the two projects themselves, but for the sector, if these play initiatives could win popular support on this high-profile platform.

Please circulate this through your network of play supporters.

Thank you.

    Nice to see Bristol won and I hope the other play organisations do too. But – and there is always a but – I have a worry about this model of deciding who should get funding. Far too X Factor for me – which in my view is the worst programme on TV that I have ever seen. Except maybe Crossroads.
