Anderson calls for support of Destined Lottery Awards Bid
Anderson has met with the members, volunteers and staff of Destined on a number of occasions and had the privilege of recently attending their AGM along with the Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness.
“I have been extremely impressed with what they are doing, empowering people with disabilities,” she said. “It very easy to vote on their web site www.destined.ie or call 0844 686 1992 and I would urge people in Derry and Donegal to get behind this bid. The semi-final round of public voting runs from 1-18 June. Three projects in each category with the most votes will progress to the final round of public voting, which will run from 26 July-13 August.”
The winning projects in each of the seven categories will receive recognition on a BBC1 TV show later this year and, in addition to the Lottery funding they have already been awarded, they will receive a £2,000 cash prize to spend on their project.
