Following the vote, the project that received the most votes in its area will receive a grant of up to £4,000, second place receiving up to £2,000 and third place up to £1,000.

Why not give it a go and see if your local store may be able to provide a raffle prize, food or drink for fundraising events or even help out with a special camp. Check out their store locator here.
