Merseyside projects need votes from local community

CLEARVIEW 2nd Allerton Scout Group, Kirkby C of E Primary School and Maggie May's Community Café in Merseyside have been announced as finalists in the 2016 Jewson Building Better Communities competition. After beating 1,800 nominated projects they have made it to this stage, and now need your help to secure a share of the £250,000 prize fund.

The projects are calling on members of the local community to get behind them and cast their vote on the Jewson Facebook Page. Winners will be awarded building materials from Jewson to help transform buildings up and down the UK into warm, inviting and efficient spaces for the whole community to enjoy.

This year, applicants had the choice to nominate a project for either the main prize of a £150,000 transformation, using the Saint-Gobain 'My Comfort' building principles, or a share of a £100,000 regional prize fund, where they could ask for anything from £500 to £10,000 to spend on building materials.

People have time to vote for their local project until 19 June 2016. Votes can be cast via the Jewson Facebook Page.  View the shortlist can be seen via clicking on here.

David Fenton, Marketing Director at Jewson, said:- "Supporting the communities where we live and work is so important to us, and hearing the heart warming tales of some of last year's projects motivated us to do even more to help boost community spirit up and down the UK.  By more than doubling the prize fund to a quarter of a million pounds, we're giving people the chance to transform the community projects and initiatives that are close to their hearts. Now people have the opportunity to vote online via Facebook for their favourite causes, and make a difference to local communities."
