Good causes in and around Skegness are appealing for your help to win up to £3,000 in funding to support their work.

Four groups in the area are currently vying for the cash through the Lloyds’ Bank’s Community Fund.

They include the Skegness Amateur Swimming Club and LIVES (Lincolnshire Integrated Voluntary Emergency Service), both of which have approached The Standard asking for readers’ support.

The swimming club, which is based at Embassy Pools, has said the award would be used to train new volunteer staff on coaching courses, making its group accessible to more children and increase members, with a view to securing the club for generations to come.

LIVES is an emergency medical charity which provides vital help in the minutes before ambulance crews arrive at an incident.

Stephen Hyde, marketing fundraiser, said: “We want to encourage Lincolnshire people to vote for us and support us as we are a Lincolnshire charity which has saved the lives of hundreds of local people over the years.”

The other two causes are: the Boston Kuk Sool Won martial arts school, which would use the money to install heating at its premises and expand its service, and The Jacdor Community Pre-School, in Coningsby, which would look to improve its provision with the funds.

Voting closes on Friday.

Funds of either £3,000, £2,000, £1,000 or £500 will be awarded depending on votes.
