Please Vote For Us!

I have 2 projects which have been accepted for an opportunity to win a Nat West Community Force grant. They are both extremely worthwhile projects and you can learn more about both by watching the videos (audio slideshows - that we all spent last week making!) on each profile.

You'll find our profiles on the Nat West Community Force Site here. Follow the links to read our profiles & VOTE:
