Solihull Observer and Vodafone to give £1,000 to deserving charity

Solihull Editorial 15th Jan, 2016 Updated: 21st Oct, 2016

THE SOLIHULL Observer has teamed up with Vodafone in the town centre to give away £1,000 to a deserving borough charity.

The Community Connection Awards are Vodafone’s way of ‘giving something back’ to the communities in which their stores are located and are intended to help charities have a real and positive impact in the local area.

Solihull Observer readers are being asked to nominate the charity they deem to be the most deserving of the Solihull store’s £1,000 award.

The winning project could be anything from a local soup kitchen that needs money for a new oven to the local scout group who need new uniform.

How to nominate:

All you have to do to nominate is send us an e-mail, titled ‘Vodafone Community Connection Award’ and detailing your chosen charity, why it deserves to be chosen, and what the money would be used for.

Emails – to be sent to: editor@solihullobserver.co.uk – must be received by Monday,

February 8 and include your name, address and daytime contact number.

The winner will be announced the following week.

Qualifying criteria:

* The award must also be for a specific project or purpose, rather than just to cover operating costs.

* The award must be stand-alone rather than form any part of a larger contribution or bigger appeal.

* Nominees must have a registered charity number.

* It cannot be a personal or individual plight, nor a government funded organisation.
