THE MP for North West Leicestershire is calling for his constituents to get involved with comparethemarket.com's latest Great British Switch campaign.

The scheme provides the chance to nominate a local charity to be awarded a £50,000 donation in recognition of a cause which brings communities together.

Members of the public and charities are invited to submit their nomination by tweeting the name of their favoured charity, and why they think should win the award, using the #greatbritishswitch hashtag.

Nominations can also be made by visiting www.metro.co.uk/greatbritishswitch

The deadline for nominations is at noon on Tuesday.

Conservative Andrew Bridgen (pictured left) said: "The good work that local charities do in making our neighbourhoods stronger deserves to be recognised and I very much welcome this initiative, which could help bring more funding."
