The Lloyds Bank Community Fund allows members of the public to nominate their favourite local group or charity for a grant of up to £3,000.
It helps people across England, Wales and Northern Ireland have a positive impact in the hearts of their communities by giving grants to good causes.
Around 1,400 community groups in around 350 communities are shortlisted for a public vote.
And the shortlisted community groups will be in with a chance of receiving a £3,000, £2,000, £1,000 or £500 Community Fund award.
Storybeat helped drive applications and then told the stories of the successful groups with content syndicated directly to their local and regional press titles.
This continued a seven-year partnership between Sportsbeat and Lloyds Bank which helped tell the story of the sponsorship of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games across the UK’s regional media.
