Earlier this year Lloyds Bank customers and the wider public were able to nominate local good causes to invite them to apply to this year's Lloyds Bank Community Fund. Over 8,300 groups were nominated, with nearly 5,200 groups applications.
1,400 good causes in 350 communities across England, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands are set to benefit from the Community Fund this year with awards of up to £3,000, depending upon the number of votes received.
The community groups shortlisted in the Rother Valley are Treeton Terriers Junior Football Club and Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice.
A public vote is running until 10 October 2014. Members of the public can vote for the good causes they would like to support in Lloyds Bank branches, online, by SMS or by Twitter. I would like to encourage constituents to cast a vote for our local community groups. For more information please visit https://communityfund.lloydsbank.com/communityfund/cf_home.asp
