With online voting underway, this week sees the four competing projects in the Big Lottery Fund’s ‘The People’s £50 Million Lottery Giveaway’ showcased in a series of short programmes on ITV1 presented by Katie Derham. Lorraine Kelly champions the cause for Sustrans’ Connect 2 on Tuesday evening, 4th December at 11.05pm, so anyone interested should either make sure they stay up to watch or set the recorder.
