The Big Lottery Fund and ITV have announced a bigger People's Millions public voting competition for 2007. Ninety grants of £80,000 are up for grabs this year, including awards to the most popular runners-up in each ITV region.
These £80,000 awards will fund projects that aim to make a difference in their community from creating an urban nature reserve, a wildlife garden or play area to clearing up an over grown waterway or vandalised community building.
The opportunity to have a say on how Lottery money is awarded caught the public imagination last year and thousands of votes were cast in a frantic week of frayed nerves that culminated in champagne celebrations for 86 projects.
