Lloyds Bank Community Fund

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.

Are you drinking enough?

Summer is here and the temperature is rising! Most of us enjoy the warm weather but often we are unaware that we are becoming dehydrated and need to replace the fluids we lose through breathing, sweating and urinating.
