Thousands of votes have been cast to help a Brighouse community group benefit from the Lloyds Bank Community Fund 2014.

The 1st Brighouse Guides have been shotlisted in the area and the voting closes on Friday, October 10.

Members of the public can vote online, by SMS text message, by visiting a local Lloyds Bank branch and, for the first time, using Twitter.

Graham Lindsay, Group Director responsible business and community affairs at Lloyds Banking Group, said: “Through our Helping Britain Prosper Plan we have committed to being the banking group that brings communities together to help them thrive.

“We are incredibly proud to be able to support more community groups than ever before to continue their vital work through our Community Fund 2014.

“This year your vote can make a significant difference to the amount awarded to each community group so I encourage everyone to take a moment to champion a good cause locally and cast a vote.”

The number of votes cast in each community will determine how Community Fund awards are allocated.

In each community the good cause that receives the most votes will receive a £3,000 award, with the second placed group receiving an award of £2,000, those in third and fourth place receiving £1,000 and £500 respectively. To find out more and vote, visit
