Give Southport project its chance to be in the spotlight

NORTH West Blood Bikes Lancs and Lakes, which works with Southport and Formby Hospital, is appealing for local votes as it strives for nationwide acclaim on BBC One in this year's National Lottery Awards. The project beat off stiff competition from over 600 organisations to reach the public voting stage in this year's National Lottery Awards; the annual search for the UK's favourite Lottery funded projects. North West Blood Bikes Lancs and Lakes is competing against 6 other projects to be crowned the winner of the Health category. Winners of the seven National Lottery Awards categories will each get a £3,000 cash prize to spend on their project, an iconic National Lottery Awards trophy and attend a star studded glittering Awards ceremony in London, broadcast on BBC One in September 2016. The North West Blood Bikes Lancs and Lakes is a voluntary, out of hours transport service, working with NHS hospitals and labs in Lancashire and the Lakes. This group of motorcyclists volunteers their 'down' time; evenings, weekends, bank holidays, 7 days a week, 365 days a year - to ensure hospitals don't have to pay for private couriers or taxis out of hours. The Lottery grant funded one of the group's 14 liveried bikes, though volunteers also use their own. Paul Brooks, Founder, Chairman and Trustee of NWBB Lancs and Lakes, says winning the prestigious National Lottery Award and having their work showcased on national television would be an honour:- "We're delighted to have reached the finals of The National Lottery Awards. Lottery money has really helped us in buying much needed motorcycles and specialist equipment. It's easy to vote, so we're hoping people support us, as it would be a fantastic reward for everyone involved in the project to receive national recognition for their hard work."

TV star and actor John Barrowman will be presenting the National Lottery Awards for the 6th time this year. He says:- "The National Lottery Awards are a great way to shine a spotlight on outstanding Lottery-funded projects. Now in their 13th year, the Awards celebrate the talent and dedication of the amazing staff and volunteers that run incredible life changing Lottery funded projects for the benefit of their communities and the people who live in them. Your local project has worked very hard to become a finalist and they now need your support because the project with the most votes in each category will be crowned the winner. Projects receive funding thanks to National Lottery players who raise £36 million every single week for Good Causes across the UK such as North West Blood Bikes Lancs and Lakes."

To vote for North West Blood Bikes Lancs and Lakes, please go to:- LotteryGoodCauses.Org.UK/Awards or telephone:- 0844 836 9701 and follow the campaign on twitter: hashtag #NLAwards. Voting runs for four weeks from 9am, on Wednesday, 22 June 2016, until midnight, on Wednesday, 20 July. 2016. There are 7 projects competing for votes across seven categories, reflecting the main areas of National Lottery funding:- arts, sport, heritage, health, environment, education and voluntary / charity.
