CHYPPS NEWS LETTER

Time to Vote
No, it's not another referendum, this time we're asking you to vote to help charities in Somerset secure funding for the next year. There are currently two online public votes taking place. The first is through Aviva and the second through NatWest/Royal Bank of Scotland.
The Aviva vote can be accessed at: https://www.avivacommunityfund.co.uk/acfcms/get-involved where you can browse through all the projects and vote for up to ten of your favourites including CHYPPS where we are hoping to secure £1000 to help us run some community support sessions for our members. In all there are 56 Somerset based organisations for whom you can vote.
The NatWest/RBS vote can be accessed at: http://skillsandopportunitiesfund.rbs.co.uk/vote.html. Here you can vote once per region and there are 15 organisations currently asking for votes in the Wales and South West region including The Volunteer Network and Spark Somerset.
