Six Norfolk charities are hoping to get your vote to receive an award of between £4,000 and £25,000 from the Masonic Charitable Foundation Awards.

The amount they receive depends on how many votes they get and voting ends on Monday, 31 July. The charities up for the award are Centre 81, Home-Start Norfolk, Star Throwers, Norfolk Millennium Trust for Carers, Stepping Stones and West Norfolk Carers.

Viv Lee, manager of Stepping Stones said: 'Stepping Stones is a small, vibrant charity for adults with learning disabilities. We're delighted to have been nominated for an MCF award by the Norfolk Freemasons.

'The funding would allow us to continue and develop our mark in supporting our students in a more flexible way. We have been working hard to attract as many votes as we can for the MCF award over the past month.'
