A COMMUNITY music project in Southampton is appealing for public votes today to help it win a £50,000 People’s Millions grant.

The cash will enable the SoCo Music Project to build a music and media studio at the Hightown Youth Centre in Thornhill for use by the local community.

A programme of workshops and activities will be run for people across the city including live music, recording, music technology, film editing, internet radio, and podcasting.

The SoCo project will be featured on ITV tonight.

To vote, call 0871 626 8866. Lines close at midnight.
