The Trust wants your vote to win National Lottery Funding

The Hull Kingston Rovers Community Trust is calling for your vote to secure £48,900 worth of National Lottery funding as part of this year’s People’s Projects.

The Trust’s excellent Food For Thought project based at KCOM Craven Park has been shortlisted for the scheme. It runs fitness and nutrition programmes for people of all ages from the local community to encourage them to increase their participation in physical activities and to help make healthier choices about their diet and lifestyle.

First team players Joe Cator and Joe Wardill are two people who have been involved with the scheme, which includes the Get Fit with the Robins programme, and Food For Thought is now one of five groups in the region in the running for a share of up to £150,000 of funding.

Now in its 13th year, the Big Lottery Fund, ITV and The National Lottery are teaming up to give the public a chance to decide how National Lottery funding should be put to good use in their local area.

Designed to celebrate some of the incredible projects the Big Lottery Fund has supported over the past year, 95 community-based schemes are now shortlisted across the UK. In each region, the three with the most public votes will receive grants of up to £50,000. This will help them to continue their work to improve local people’s lives. The entire amount up for grabs across the UK is a life-changing £3 million.

On Monday, the Community Trust will showcase its Food For Thought project on ITV’s Calendar programme at 6pm. To be in with a chance of winning, the Trust is calling on viewers to support its bid. Voting opens at 9am on Monday, 16th April at

Voting closes at midday on Monday, 30th April 2018. People can vote once per region and will need an email address to vote**. To support Food For Thought and for Ts & Cs please visit
