Last chance to vote for your Community Chest favourite
Last updated at 23:59, Wednesday, 12 March 2014
There are just hours remaining to vote for your favourite in our £3,500 cash giveaway.
The News & Star Community Chest, supported by the CN Group Charitable Trust and sponsored by Brampton Skip Hire, McKnights & Son Builders Ltd and Nuclear Management Partners, is offering six good causes a share of the money.
All 52 nominations have been put to the public vote – and you have until 11.59pm today to cast yours.
Details of each of the entries and how to vote by text message are online at the News & Star website.
Almost 1,000 votes have already been cast and there are very few votes between the front-runners.
To ensure your chosen charity does not miss out, make sure your paper vote or text message is with the News & Star before the deadline.
The deserving cause with the most votes will receive £1,000 cash, with the two runners-up being given £500 each.
Once the public votes have been cast, the three sponsors will each choose a cause they feel is most deserving to receive £500.
