Grand way to make a change
LANCASHIRE residents still have time to qualify for the chance to receive £1,000 to do their bit to put community projects and ideas into action - and change the world for the better in 2017.
The offer is part of the national campaign Change the World in 20 Ways, which was launched by ethical beauty brand Green People last month.
Green People, which is celebrating its 20th year, is being supported by the renowned anatomist, author and broadcaster, and its official science communication adviser and brand ambassador, Prof Alice Roberts.
The initiative aims to uncover individuals or groups from all over the UK with great ideas for making a positive difference to the community around them – however small it might be – and Lancashire residents are invited to take part.
Whether it’s trying to get a charity project off the ground, starting a free yoga class or perhaps sprucing up a local urban area, Green People wants to hear from people with their ideas and why they deserve to receive £1,000 towards their project.
Prof Roberts said: “There is still time to take part, submit your entry and get support to make your dream a reality.
“I am delighted to be working with Green People to spread positivity across the country. It’s a great way to make a difference and I’m looking forward to seeing people’s ideas.”
To be in with a chance of receiving £1,000, people and groups simply need to send their ideas, along with a breakdown of how they would spend the funds, no later than Monday, July 31 by emailing email@example.com. Entries can also be sent by post. Full details along with terms and conditions can be found on Green People’s website, www.green people.co.uk/change
