An email from the Historic Dockyard in Chatham begging for votes for an upcoming awards ceremony had me checking to see who else is in the running in the London area.

In addition to a bauble, there is a £2,000 prize for the winning organisation.

The London area candidates seem to be the following – so you can cast your vote as you deem fit (or ignore the whole lot if you prefer).

Hillingdon Sports and Leisure Complex – Best sports project

The Sport Action Zone (Lambeth/Southwark) – Best sports project

The Cause 2000’s ‘They Came They Stayed’ – Best Heritage Project. Film making project to record the memories of Caribbean migrants to the UK.

The Capital Woodlands Project – Best Environment Project. Improvements to 60 small woods in London.

Spitalfields City Farm’s Rare Breeds in the City – Best Heritage Project. Breeding and education about rare pigs and chickens.

The Midi Music Company’s Grit Story: Still Risin’ from the Dust – Best Heritage Project. Arts and music to promote something called “British Grime” (no, I have no idea either!).

Innovative Vision’s Peer Educators Project – Best Voluntary/Charity project. Working to reduce the stigma attached to HIV/AIDS.

HMS Cavalier – Best Education Project. The purchase and restoration of the WW2 destroyer.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
