Joshua Hopkins of the Hopkins Charitable Fund said: “We are very excited to launch the charity vote for Norfolk. The six charities have been shortlisted for the outstanding contribution they make to the lives of so many in the area.
“The vote is a great way for the charities to galvanise their current supporters, reach out to new ones and they could also receive a significant donation.”
The votes are one of the initiatives offered by the Hopkins Charitable Fund as part of its 2017 pledge to donate half a million pounds over the course of five years to charities and community groups across Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.
Claire Cullens, Chief Executive of Norfolk Community Foundation added: “This is a great way for the shortlisted charities to spread the word about their current schemes and future projects, I’d urge everyone to take a look at the charities and make their choice. The generous donation from Hopkins Homes will significantly help the chosen charities to continue their excellent hard work in our communities.”
The vote opens on Monday 18th November and will run until 5pm Friday 6th December.
