A Warrington project is appealing for votes after reaching the finals of the 25th Birthday National Lottery Awards.
The Great Sankey Neighbourhood is competing in the Best Sport Project category. They beat off stiff competition from more than 700 organisations to reach the public voting stage in this year’s National Lottery Awards, which celebrate the inspirational people and projects who do extraordinary things with the help of National Lottery funding.
The project with the most votes will be crowned the winner and receive a £10,000 cash prize, an iconic National Lottery Awards trophy and attend a star-studded glittering awards ceremony to be broadcast on BBC One in November.
The Great Sankey Neighbourhood is a longstanding leisure centre that has been reformed thanks to funding from the National Lottery. The 40-year-old community facility is the first UK dementia-friendly hub, boasting a library, fitness suite, sports hall, and Garden Spa.
