CROSSROADS Care East Midlands has been shortlisted in a charity giving scheme and could receive £5,000 if it receives enough votes.
Nationwide Building Society allows the public to vote online for the charities they would like to receive £5,000 of funding, as part of the society's The Big Local.
Each month Nationwide selects three charities nominated by its members from a different UK region. The three chosen charities will each be awarded £200 and members will then be able to visit the new 'Big Local' website at www.your.nationwide.co.uk/thebiglocal and vote for which of the three they would most like to receive an additional £5,000 of funding.
The Big Local also features on Nationwide's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/NationwideBuildingSociety (look for The Big Local button) allowing people to vote for their preferred charity and share their choice with their friends and family, generating more votes.
