Vote for The Way Youth Zone in this year’s National Lottery Awards.
We 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.
The Way Youth Zone is competing against six other projects to be crowned the winner of the Sport 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.
Glenn Evans, Youth Work Manager of The Way Youth Zone, 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 helped us to build our state of the art facility for young people in Wolverhampton. It’s also helped us buy sensory equipment for our disabled young people. It’s really easy to vote and we hope the people of the Wolverhampton and the West Midlands get behind us and help us to change even more lives. It would be a fantastic achievement for our community and young people.”
TV star and actor John Barrowman will be presenting the National Lottery Awards for the sixth 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 The Way Youth Zone.”
