Lloyds reaches out to Island charities


The Lloyds Bank Community Fund is gearing-up again to help four Island charities.

Grants from the 2013 fund will be made to more than 1300 community groups across England and Wales.

Local residents are invited to have a say in how the money's distributed by voting for their favourite good cause.

Voting has opened to the public online, by SMS text message and by visiting a Lloyds Bank branch.

The four charity contenders this year are Manx Miracles, raising £80,000 for a centre for children with special needs; Wish Upon a Dream, which grants wishes to terminally ill patients in the Island; the homeless charity Graih for its drop-in service; and Hospice Isle of Man. 

The top two charities will be awarded £3000 each and the runners-up £300.

Voting closes on 1 November 2013.

You can find out more about the community groups involved and cast your vote by visiting: www.lloydsbank.com/communityfund
