Delyn MP David Hanson is backing Holywell’s Circular Footpath Route project to take home its share of the £7.8 million allocated to Wales through the Big Lottery Fund.
Through the People’s Millions initiative The groups involved can win awards of up to £80,000 each for their community project from the regional People’s Millions contest shortly being showcased on ITV Wales.
This is the third year that the BIG Lottery Fund has mounted the contest with ITV. Across the week of 26 to 30th November, good causes will go head-to-head on ITV Wales in a bid to secure public support by phone vote.
On Tuesday November 27, the Holywell Circular Footpath Route project from Holywell, Flintshire, will be competing against Parc Chwarae, Hamdden ac Adloniant Dolgellau in Dolgellau, Gwynedd.
The Holywell Circular Footpath Route project, run by St Beunos Walk Group, aims to enhance and improve the accessibility of footpath routes within Holywell, providing the local community and tourists with greener, cleaner and safer access to the environment, leisure and heritage spots along a 5km route.
David Hanson said:
“I hope many of you will be able to tune in and support the project which will develop and improve walkways around Holywell.
“I want to congratulate St Beunos Walk Group for all the work they have put into the project and wish them well for the big vote on Tuesday.”
Notes to Editors:
Telephone voting numbers – as with previous years, ITV and the Big Lottery Fund will use a low cost non-premium rate telephone number. ITV and BIG do not make a profit from the voting telephone numbers.
The week following the regional Peoples’ Millions TV contest, the BIG Lottery Fund and ITV1 plan to screen on consecutive nights the People’s £50 million Lottery Giveaway in which four projects of national importance will compete for the public vote to win a massive £50 million pound award from the Fund.
