Cash For Your Community
The 35 finalists have now been selected to take part in this year's Cash For Your Community campaign.
Each group will be collecting as many vote tokens as possible to be in with the chance of winning a share of the £20,000 prize pot. The first prize of £5,000 will be awarded to the group who collected the highest number of vote tokens, the second prize is £2,000 and third £1,000. The remaining groups taking part will then receive a share of £12k based on the total number of vote tokens they submit.
How it works
Each of the 35 groups selected as finalists for this year's campaign will need to collect as many vote tokens as possible which are printed inside the Shropshire Star newspaper, to be in with the chance of winning a share of the £20,000.
Special vote tokens are being printed from Wednesday February 27 to Saturday April 6 2019 - look out for bumper token days. The Shropshire Star is on sale in all local retailers and supermarkets.
The first prize of £5,000 will be awarded to the group who collected the highest number of vote tokens, the second prize is £2,000 and third £1,000. The remaining groups taking part will receive a share of £12k based on the total number of votes they receive. The maximum number of groups which can take part is 35 and the minimum prize is £50. To qualify for a prize, you must submit at least 500 vote tokens printed in-paper.
Encourage your family, friends and supporters to vote for you by collecting tokens on your behalf!
(Posters can be downloaded at the bottom of the page to help promote token collect)
Submitting Your Tokens
When you come to submit your tokens please place vote tokens in batches of 500 inside envelopes or bags. Then place these in one parcel (or a large envelope). You will need to complete a Vote Token Notification Form which can be downloaded here or can be found in your information packs which were posted out, please place a copy of the form inside the parcel. If you need to submit more than one parcel please ensure a copy of the form is included in each one.
Vote tokens must be counted and returned by the group to the Shropshire Star, at the address below, by Friday, April 26, 2019.
Tip — it will be easier if you count on the run, rather than leaving it until the end of the campaign! The top groups will be invited to a presentation at Shrewsbury Town Football Club in June.
