With just under two weeks left before voting for the Calor Rural Community Fund comes to a close, rural community projects are relying on supporters now more than ever.

Home energy provider Calor is urging everyone to get involved in voting for its Fund – a scheme that helps rural communities throughout England, Scotland and Wales gain funding for projects at the heart of their community.

From the simply superb, to a well-needed refurb, this year’s Fund includes applications from 325 different projects from across the UK, all of which need your votes to make it to the top.

And with twenty-one prize-pots of £1,000, £2,500 and £5,000 up for grabs, the Calor Rural Community Fund will undoubtedly make a difference to winning projects – improving local life and bringing rural communities together.

To vote for your nearest community project – or one close to your heart – simply register via the Calor Rural Community Fund website and you’ll get 10 votes, which can be used to support a number of projects or just one in particular.

The projects with the most votes from each funding category will become finalists and be reviewed by a panel of independent judges including: Business in the Community, mental health charity Mind, Crowdfunder, Plunkett and Rural England, to decide which entries are to be awarded the funding.
