Former Strictly Come Dancing winner Ore Oduba is calling on people to nominate local good causes for recognition in the National Lottery Awards 2018.

The annual search to find the UK’s favourite Lottery-funded projects is under way.

And Ore issued his call as new figures show that more than £5million of National Lottery funding was invested in Renfrewshire and East Renfrewshire last year.

He said: “The National Lottery Awards are a rare opportunity to put the spotlight on those who truly deserve it. If you know a Lottery project that’s making a positive difference, now’s the time to nominate.”

To take part, call 0207 293 3329.
