Time is running out to enter a competition recognising unsung heroes in the borough.

The National Lottery Awards has called for groups who received National Lottery funding last year to shout about how the money has helped the community.

A total of 38 projects in Enfield shared a slice of the £1.2million dished out last year, and each have until 9am on Tuesday, March 19 to enter.

The winner in each category will receive £2,000 in cash and appear in a BBC One programme later this year.

Amongst the projects helped out by the cash were the Southgate Sports and Leisure Trust in Trent Country Park, which received £50,000 to replace two pitches, and the Enfield Bangladesh Welfare Association, which received £10,000 to deliver weekend study support.

John Barrowman, who presented last year’s National Lottery Awards show, said: “National Lottery players in Enfield should be proud of the difference they are making to people in the area.

“The National Lottery Awards recognise the unsung heroes, dedicated workers and selfless volunteers making great use of Lottery funding.

"If you know of a Lottery-funded organisation that deserves to be nominated, we want to hear from you.”
