New Good Neighbour Programme will award local good causes with thousands of pounds . .
• Provident’s Good Neighbour Community Programme will provide funding to support local organisations voted for by their community
• Voting is open and closes on 9th May.
From today residents from across Durham are invited to nominate the projects or organisations that make a real difference to their local communities to receive funding of up to £2,000 each.
The funding will be delivered by Provident’s Good Neighbour Community Programme, which invested more than £1m into the community during 2015.
Until 9th May, the public can nominate good causes across Scotland and the North of England with an online submission. A shortlist of the top four nominations across this region will be announced next month.
Once the shortlist is announced, local people will again get the chance to vote to decide on their winner
Andy Parkinson, Provident’s Home Credit Director, commented: “Provident agents have always worked closely within the communities in which we operate and see first-hand the importance of community spirit. We believe that people do have pride in their communities and sometimes just need a helping hand to develop it and improve it.
“In 2015 we invested over £1m in our communities through our Good Neighbour Programme, and we want to extend our support to new projects this year. It’s because of this that we’re now inviting the public to nominate the organisations that they think make a real difference in their local communities. No matter how small the project or organisation, I’d encourage people to nominate those who deserve support to continue their great work.”
