Rory is encouraging local groups to take part in The People’s Millions competition for the chance to secure significant funding for worthy local, community projects.

The Big Lottery Fund and ITV are giving the public a chance to vote for the community projects they want to receive good cause funding, and have pledged up to £50,000 to 76 projects across every region of the UK to charitable projects which inspire, involve and improve their local community. Those applicants who are initially successful will go on to battle it out on prime time ITV regional news for the public vote.

Rory said: “Funding is incredibly tight for many local communities at the moment, and there are so many fantastic initiatives that are simply lacking the initial cash injection they need to get up and running. The People’s Millions competition represents a great opportunity to mobilise support and publicity behind a local cause, and is definitely an avenue I would encourage all local communities to be exploring.”

The deadline for applications is 13 May 2013 and those interested should fill out the simple entry form online at or contact the Big Advice Line on 0845 0 10 11 12.
