Good causes are gaining big momentum in a bid to unlock some cash in our Community Chest Campaign.
The key is to collect the tokens printed in the back of every copy of the EDP to claim a share of the £100,000 giveaway.
One group aiming to hit the 500 token target in short time are the dedicated volunteers running Weybourne Village Hall in north Norfolk.
The popular community hub, which hosts sports and social activities every day, requires much needed funds for a major refurbishment.
Trustee Lois Blamire said: 'Our hall is well used, but lots needs to be done. In the first place we would like to put the money towards getting the roof rennovated and removing asbestos from parts of the building. We are asking everyone to cut the tokens out of the EDP and have had so much support. This is something that is going to grow momentum.'
Tokens are being collected in the chest on the counter at Weybourne Village Store, on Beach Lane, and the trustees are hoping to have another in place at the village hall.
Groups taking part in the EDP Community Chest campaign, in association with the Norfolk Community Foundation, are hoping to receive a grant between £250 and £2,500 to benefit their chosen project.
