Time is running out to support NI projects

Three amazing Northern Ireland projects need your readers' support to win in the National Lottery Awards 2017, the annual search for the public's favourite lottery-funded projects.

The Cancer Fund for Children's Young Shoulders programme is seeking to be named best Charity/Voluntary project, NI Screen's Unlocking Film Heritage: Northern Ireland on Film has been nominated for a Best Heritage project award and the Hearing Hub, supported by Auditory Verbal UK, is in the running for the Best Health project award.

The winner of each category, as voted for by the public, will receive a £5,000 prize and see their name in lights at a special BBC One show in September.

The National Lottery Awards celebrate and recognise the inspirational and life-changing impact of National Lottery-funded projects. Each week, National Lottery players raise more than £30m for arts, sport, heritage and community projects across the UK.

Voting is simple; go to www.lotterygoodcauses.org.uk/awards, or Tweet using the each project's hashtag - #NLAYShoulders, #NLAFilmHeritage, or #NLAHearingH, or retweet a message with this hashtag in it on Twitter.

Having won Strictly Come Dancing voting last year, I know how much getting public support means.

Voting closes at midnight on Thursday (July 27).
