More than 100 entries have been received for the first month of our Community Chest campaign.

District offices, the Norfolk Community Foundation - who supports the campaign - and the Eastern Daily Press have been getting the masses of applications.

Now, while the dragons make the difficult decision about who will win a grant of between £250 and £2500, it is time to focus on your February collection.

Tokens are printed on the back page of the EDP every day and all you need to do is snip and save 500 in a single month to apply for February's £12,000 giveaway.

Get your friends, family and local businesses collecting for your nonprofit community group and receive funding to transform your area.

For those that have not collected a starter pack - there are plenty of them in EDP offices across the region.

Head into an office to collect one, or email Jemma Walker (contacts are the bottom of the page) with your name, full address and contact number and a starter pack will be delivered to you.

With thousands to give away, there is plenty for the masses of groups jumping on-board.
