£eith Chooses needs your vote, now!
Have you voted yet? £eith Chooses is the way that money gets allocated to community projects in Leith. There is £56,102 available but 20 charities/ groups have applied for up to £5,000 each, so sadly they can not all be successful. Who decides where the money goes?
Not the Councillors or Council officials (- though that’s how it was done in ‘the old days’)
Now, YOU do!
If you live, work, study or volunteer in Leith, and are 8 years old or over, you vote for your favourite projects, and the groups / projects with the most votes get the funding.
It’s local democracy in action. It’s trusting local people community to know best what’s right for their own local community.
Voting is open until midnight on Monday 31st January and is pretty quick and easy to do. Please do participate!
