Cynon Valley - - YOUR VIEWS -

YOUR read­ers can help to recog­nise or­di­nary peo­ple do­ing ex­tra­or­di­nary things.

How? Well, the Na­tional Lot­tery Awards 2018 are open for en­tries, giv­ing Lot­tery­funded pro­jects a chance to daz­zle in the na­tional lime­light.

The Na­tional Lot­tery Awards recog­nise the in­spi­ra­tional work car­ried out by or­gan­i­sa­tions who use Na­tional Lot­tery fund­ing as a force for good to trans­form com­mu­ni­ties and change lives.

They cel­e­brate the amaz­ing work and tire­less ef­forts be­hind the suc­cess of lo­cal arts, ed­u­ca­tion, health, en­vi­ron­men­tal, sports, her­itage and com­mu­nity pro­jects.

Ev­ery week Na­tional Lot­tery play­ers raise £30m for good causes and, since 1994, more than 525,000 Lot­tery grants have been awarded.

This has raised vi­tal funds that fuel new op­por­tu­ni­ties, en­cour­age cre­ativ­ity, fund sports pro­jects and tackle lone­li­ness to name but a few, which could not have hap­pened without the sup­port of Na­tional Lot­tery play­ers.

Seven pro­jects will be recog­nised at a starstud­ded awards cer­e­mony broad­cast on BBC One later this year and each will win a £5,000 cash prize.

You can nom­i­nate your favourite Na­tional Lot­tery funded project by vis­it­ing www. na­tion­al­lot­teryawards.org.uk/awards.

All en­tries must be in by mid­night on Fri­day, April 6. Ore Oduba Na­tional Lot­tery Awards Am­bas­sador
