Time is almost up for charities in the Boston area to apply to win a £1,000 sum being made available by the town’s Vodafone store.

Staff at the branch have teamed up with the Standard to find a worthy recipient of their £1,000 Community Connection Award ... and there is now just a week left for nominations.

The winner must meet the following criteria:

l It should be a local charity, with a registered charity number, that makes a significant impact on the community;

l It cannot be for a personal or individual plight, nor a Government-funded organisation;

l The award must be for a specific project or a purpose, rather than just to cover operating costs, and be stand-alone, rather than form any part of a larger contribution or bigger appeal.

To nominate a cause, write to Community Connection Award, Boston Standard, 5-6 Church Lane, Boston, PE21 6ND or email, explaining why it is deserving of the money.

The winner will be selected by the Standard and Vodafone store staff.

The closing date for entries is noon on March 3.
