Deadline looms for Northern Ireland's Lottery funds

Communities across Northern Ireland have less than a month to apply for a chance to win a Big Lottery Fund grant of up to £50,000.

The People's Millions TV competition awards funding to projects that make a difference to the lives of people and communities.

Funding can be awarded to anything from youth and environmental projects to schemes that improve employment prospects or help for people in need. Applications are welcome from voluntary and community groups, local authorities, schools, statutory health bodies and branches of organisations or partnerships.

The deadline for entries is noon on May 16. There are four awards of up to £50,000 on offer in each ITV regional news area, including Northern Ireland.

Entry packs are available at www.peoplesmillions.org.uk
