We need your help – Vote for us by 20th November 2018, and help us get the Aviva Community Fund.
Keep On Rockin’ did a day of recording in April 2017 – and we just received the physical CD!
Earlier this year, over 7,000 community groups were nominated across England, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man and Channel Islands. 1,400 causes in 350 communities were then shortlisted for the Community Fund award.
Four local causes in every area will be awarded funding depending on the number of votes they receive.
The group with the most votes will get £3,000, the next £2,000, £1,000 and finally, £500.
ActivLives have been short listed for this Community Fund award.
We attended the EoE Well-Being Show on Saturday 7th June at Newmarket Racecourse – here’s a video showing what happened there, and what you missed!
Preparation for our annual garden event is coming along!
You might have seen…or more likely, heard the ActivLives choir (aka ‘Keep On Rockin”) all around Ipswich.
