People’s Millions – We need your help!
On the 25th of November 2013 Calvert Trust Exmoor will be competing in The Big Lottery People’s Millions, with a short film about us being aired during the ITV evening news. Throughout the day we will be going head to head against another project in a public phone vote to win £50,000. Voting opens at 9am, closing at midnight and the winner takes all.
Calvert Trust Exmoor will use the money to do two things; firstly to provide bursary funds to assist families with a disabled child to take a break with us, and secondly to improve our water sports facilities to be even more accessible.
We won’t know the number people need to phone to vote for us until the morning of the 25th of November; although the film is not aired until early evening, voting opens at 9am and closes at midnight. We need as many people as possible to vote for us, as many times as possible, from as many phones as possible. (There may be as many as 10 votes allowed from any one phone number).
