Vote for your favourite north Norfolk charity

Voting has opened for this year's Natwest Community Force awards where three charities from north Norfolk have the chance to win �6,000.

The Community Force programme was launched in July this year to support good causes in areas served by RBS and Natwest branches.

Some 52 charities have applied for the grant and a public vote will decide which three will receive �6,000 each.

Voting finishes on October 23 and they can be made by visiting

The top three charities also will receive advice and support from Natwest staff.

Andrew Ingham, Natwest's chief executive for North Norfolk, said: 'The response to the launch of Community Force has been incredible and it was great to see so many applications received from local charities and good causes. The voting is now open, and it is really important to me to ask the local community who should win these awards.'
