The National Lottery Awards 2011 – nominate your cause

Has your easyfundraising good cause received Lottery funding in the past 16 years? If so, you can nominate them for recognition in The National Lottery Awards 2011 and give them the chance to be selected as the UK’s favourite Lottery-funded project.

Rebecca Gowrley of The National Lottery Awards said: “Lottery players raise £28 million every week for projects both large and small, which benefit people, places and communities all across the UK. The National Lottery Awards recognise how Lottery-funded projects put that money to good use and celebrate the people behind the projects who work so tirelessly to make their organisations a success.

“If a Lottery-funded project has had a positive impact on your local area, made a real difference to your life or if you are personally involved with a project that is transforming your community, we want to hear from you.”

The entrants that make it to the finals of The National Lottery Awards will receive national recognition at a star-studded event broadcast on BBC One later this year. They will also have a chance to win a £2,000 cash prize.

The National Lottery Awards have seven categories – each reflecting an area of Lottery funding: Sport; Heritage; Arts; Environment; Health; Education; and Voluntary/Charity.

The closing date for entries must be received by 5pm on Friday 18 February.
