The Lloyds Bank Community Fund helps local people have a positive impact at the heart of their community by giving grants to four good causes in each of the 350 communities across the UK.

The four community groups in Worksop shortlisted are Kneesall Pre-School, Bassetlaw Branch Parkinson’s UK. Edwinstowe Pre-School Playgroup and Clipstone Lodge Residential Care Home.

Members of the public can now vote online, by SMS text message, by visiting a local Lloyds Bank branch and, for the first time, using Twitter until 10th October.

The number of votes cast in each community will determine how awards are allocated. In each community the good cause that receives the most votes will receive a £3,000 award, with the second placed group receiving an award of £2,000, those in third and fourth place receiving £1,000 and £500 respectively.

Graham Lindsay, group director at Lloyds Banking Group, said: “Through our Helping Britain Prosper Plan we have committed to being the banking group that brings communities together to help them thrive.”

“We are incredibly proud to be able to support more community groups than ever before to continue their vital work through our Community Fund 2014.”

Earlier this year, members of the public, Lloyds Bank customers and colleagues, nominated over 7,000 community groups, nearly 4,500 applied and were then shortlisted to the final 1,400 local good causes.
