The Castle Street Playground Group, Bala has been successful in being shortlisted for the People’s Millions which means that the group has a 50/50 chance of winning a grant of £50,000. A short film about the project will be shown on ITV Wales news on the 26th November and they’ll be against one other project in South Wales.
If the group is successful, the funding will be used to install a new playground on the land near the sports pavilion. A park used to be there but due to health and safety issues, it had to be taken down, and now the nearest park is far for children to reach and they must cross a busy road to get there.
To win the grant the group needs to secure the most amount of votes during the day – the phone number for people to vote won’t be announced until the day and lines will be open until midnight (cost around 15p and possible to vote 10 times from each phone). We ask kindly for your support and if you can spread the word to other people – great!
The phone number will be available on the People’s Millions website and in the Daily Mirror.
