Chance to win £1,000 for your chosen charity

The Advertiser and Vodafone have teamed up this week to offer one lucky charity the chance to win the Vodafone Community Connection Award of £1,000.

The winning charity that receives the £1,000 prize money could be anything from a local soup kitchen that needs money for a new oven to a local scout group who need a new uniform.

However, the winner needs to meet the following criteria:

  • It should be a local charity that makes a significant impact on the local community.
  • It cannot be a personal or individual plight, nor a Government-funded organisation.
  • The award must also be for a specific project or purpose, rather than just to cover operating costs.
  • The award must be stand-alone rather than form any part of a larger contribution or appeal.
  • Nominees must have a registered charity number.

We also need to know the reasons why you think your charity is the most deserving  and what you will spend the money on, in no more than 250 words.

The winner will be selected by Maidenhead’s Vodafone store staff and representatives of Baylis Media.

Entries should include your name, charity name, charity number, email address, daytime telephone number and completion of the following sentence: I think my chosen charity should win £1,000 in the Vodafone Community Connection Award to spend on .............. because ............ (no more than 250 words).

Send your entry to Sally Gray, Vodafone Community Award, 48 Bell Street, Maidenhead, SL6 1HX or email (with all the information required)

The winner will be advised soon after the closing date and will be expected to take part in promotional photography and publicity.

The judges’ decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into. For full terms and conditions see

Closing date for entries is Thursday, October 20 at 5pm.
