Vote for WACT to win £300 from Galaxy

The Trust needs votes to help it win a £300 donation from the Galaxy Hot Chocolate Fund.

Galaxy is seeking to help small community projects and groups with its grants. We have registered on its website with a request to buy benches for the landscaped area alongside the new Compasses Bridge at Alfold.

Until February 26th, 2017, the fund will award a total of 70 £300 donations to projects across the UK and Ireland.

Five donations will be awarded each week, four by a panel of judges and one through the People’s Choice award to the organisation with the most weekly votes.

Galaxy Hot Chocolate Fund is also casting a spotlight on the unsung heroes in organisations through its ‘Outstanding Volunteer Award’.

This gives the chance to nominate someone whose level of commitment and effort makes them a truly outstanding volunteer. We have plenty of those in WACT, so why not nominate some of them for an award!

A winner will be chosen by national volunteer organisation NCVO every week that the fund runs and they will receive a Galaxy Hot Chocolate Hamper.

If we succeed in getting a winner, the contents of the hamper will no doubt end up being revealed during a working party refreshment break this winter!
