Thank you so much for getting involved in Skipton Building Society’s Grassroots Giving initiative – we were delighted to receive your entry and read about your work – and it brings us great pleasure to let you know that your group has been selected as a shortlisted GRG group!
We received over 700 applications from community groups, clubs and organisations across the UK and we’re really impressed with the work that you do. To make it to the shortlist stage you beat off hundreds of other applicants and were able to clearly demonstrate the positive impact our funding would make in your local community.
In order to fairly allocate the funds now we ask the public to tell us who they would like to receive the funding. We will profile you and all the other shortlisted applicants on our website, www.skiptongrg.co.uk, in your local media, and on our social media accounts (@ twitter.com/SkiptonBS_GRG or www.facebook.com/skiptongrg/), to help raise awareness of the work that you do, and to encourage people to use their vote.
It’s a quick, simple click of the button to vote – your group will be listed under your geographical region – just click through to your profile and click the vote now button on the page. People can also cast their vote in their nearest Skipton Building Society branch if they prefer.
Voting is now open, and will close on 13 October 2017. The 164 groups with the highest number of votes will each win £500.
We’d like to take this moment to sincerely thank you for being part of our Grassroots Giving initiative, for sharing with us the fantastic work that you do, and for being so active in supporting your local community.
We wish you all the best in the next stage!
The Grassroots Giving Team
