New Forest Nightstop charity needs your vote for vital lifeline
A VITAL lifeline for the homeless will win a £2,000 grant – if enough people vote for it.
New Forest Nightstop, which provides free short-term accommodation for people aged 16 to 24, has reached the final of this year’s National lottery Awards.
The organisation is one of only three projects in the best voluntary/charity project – and the public will decide who wins.
Jude Todd, project co-ordinator at New Forest Nightstop, said: “Getting through to the final of the National Lottery Awards means so much to us.
“Nightstop offers a listening ear to homeless people and a sense of value, belonging and hope. We’d like people to show their appreciation of our work by voting for us.”
Call 0844 836 9737 or log on to lotterygoodcauses.org.uk/awards. The deadline for votes is October 28.
