What could £50,000 do for your community?

That’s the question being asked of communities across Scotland as the Big Lottery Fund launches The People’s Millions in partnership with STV.

Everyday someone comes up with a great idea to make their community a better place but all too often those ideas never take form – lacking the money and support to turn the dream into a reality.

The People’s Millions could change that and best of all, the decision will not be made by a committee behind closed doors but with the help of the public. If you feel passionate about making a difference in your community and have an idea that just won’t go away, the Big Lottery Fund wants to hear from you.

Anything from youth and environmental projects to schemes that improve employment prospects or help people in need are in with a chance of bagging the Big Lottery Fund cash, provided that entrants can convince their community through a broadcast on STV regional news that their idea is worthy of the prize.

Entry packs are available at www.peoplesmillions.org.uk, and the deadline for completed entries is May 16.
