Voting has now opened in the NatWest Skills and Opportunities Fund-with the Big Help Project in the running to receive up to £35,000  to support the charity in their work.

The fund supports local organisations that help people to help themselves in the areas of financial capability and enterprise. The Big Help Project is one of a number of charities competing for funding, with the winner being decided by public on-line votes-the more votes the Big Help receives, the better our chance of winning funds for our vital services.

CEO Barry Cooper said "This is a great opportunity for us to secure substantial funding towards our services, and we are asking all of our friends and supporters to please take a minute to vote for us and to share the link with friends and family."

To vote, please go to http://skillsandopportunitiesfund.natwest.com/vote  Voting closes at Midday on Friday 10th November 2017. Thank you.
