VOTES are needed to help win £6,000 for young people in Ellesmere Port.
A plan to help youngsters in Ellesmere Port develop new skills and interests has been selected by the NatWest Community Force Scheme to face a public vote.
If successful, the project would win £6,000 for The Boaty Youth Theatre based at the National Waterways Museum.
The group needs the money to keep running its drama and film project.
Gaynor La Rocca, youth activity co-ordinator at the National Waterways Museum, said: “Young people often say there is nothing to do in Ellesmere Port.
“Our Boaty Youth Theatre project and Young Film-makers Group provide valuable opportunities to direct their talents and energies in a positive way.
“If we won the money we would be able to pay for professional drama and film practitioners, film software, props and costumes. We’d also be able to help young people get formal accreditation, helping to improve their job prospects.”
People can vote for the project until Sunday, October 23.
Votes need to be cast at http://communityforce.natwest.com/project/2797.
Gaynor added: “This project will really help your community and we need as many people as possible to vote for it.”
NatWest Community Force is a new initiative which sees the banking group working with communities to support the people, projects and charities making a difference.
