Four community group in Bassetlaw are in the running for £3,000 each after being shortlisted for a share of a national fund.

Oasis, Bassetlaw Mind, Dukeries Academy for Gymnastics and Trampolining and Misterton United Junior Football Club will get a share of the 2013 Lloyds Banks Community Fund.

Voting is now open to decide how much money each group will get. The two with the most votes will each receive £3,000, with the other two receiving awards of £300 each.

Earlier this year, Lloyds Bank colleagues nominated over 4,500 community groups and worked together to shortlist the final 1,300 local good causes in more than 300 communities.

Graham Lindsay, group director, Responsible Business at Lloyds Banking Group said: “As the public vote opens for a second year, we are looking forward to showcasing the fantastic work being delivered by an enormous range of local good causes in communities across the country and encouraging everyone to get behind their local community groups by casting their votes. Congratulations to every community group on the shortlist and good luck.”

Voting is open until 1st November and can be made by text message or by visiting a local Lloyds Bank branch. Visit www.lloydsbank.com/communityfund for more details.
