Natwest Community Force – Vote Now !!!

Voting is almost at an end for this year’s Natwest Community Force, with voting closing at mid day on Monday 24th November.

As regular readers may recall a little earlier in the year, I asked for any local groups bidding for funds to let me know and I would try and publicize their applications.

To date I’m aware of 3 local groups bidding for funds, which is conveniently as you get 3 votes.

The three bids that I am aware of / will be voting for are :

British Red Cross – Fire and Emergency Support Service 

The British Red Cross in Derbyshire are bidding for funds to help replace a specially modified vehicle which works across Derbyshire. The vehicle is called out by Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service, to the scenes of fires, floods and other disasters across the county to offer practical and emotional support to the families affected.

Blythe House Hospice 

Blythe House Hospice is a day care hospice situated in Chapel-en-le-Frith. They provide information, care and support to anyone within the High Peak community living with or affected by cancer or a life-threatening illness, including families and carers. They are bidding for funds to get a van which would be used for collections and deliveries and transferring stock across the 5 charity shops they have.
