Local MP encourages people of Plymouth to vote for Aviva Community Fund Projects
Plymouth Moor View MP, Johnny Mercer, has used his Aviva Community Fund Votes to support local projects in his constituency. He is encouraging people across Plymouth to do the same.
Local projects in the city like those bidding for funds here, often rely on community grants to be able to offer their unique services to the people of Plymouth. This simple way to show your support will help these projects in their pursuit of receiving up to £25,000 from the Aviva Community Fund. And it doesn’t cost you a penny.
It is a really simple process – just go to the Aviva Community Fund website (www.avivacommunityfund.co.uk), type your location in the “find projects near to” box to get a full list, and use your ten votes to support the charities and community projects of your choice. You can give all your votes to one bid or split them between a number of projects.
Speaking about this funding opportunity, Mr Mercer said:
‘There are outstanding charitable and community organisations across our great city of Plymouth – working hard to support a wide range of causes and projects. Clearly they rely on fundraising efforts to deliver all the work they do. The national Aviva Community Fund opportunity is an excellent way for all of us to show support and appreciation for the work they do.
‘Will you join me in placing your ten votes to support the projects in Plymouth?
‘Voting closes on Friday 18th November and winners will be announced on Tuesday 10th January 2017.
What better way to help these brilliant local projects start 2017, than by supporting their Community Fund bid.’
The Aviva Community Fund awards funding of up to £25,000 for local community projects across a range of categories such as supporting the elderly, health & wellbeing and community sport.
Having received all applications, the winners will be chosen from those projects that receive the most votes from the public.
