The People’s Lake

People's Lake

People’s Millions is a bit of a lottery. Good causes put themselves forward, and some are chosen to be shown on TV. The prize is supplied by the National Lottery. On each day of voting, two projects go head-to-head to win the public vote and secure £50,000 funding on local Meridian ITV.

Today it was Thrupp Lake (aka Radley Lake) V A new place for music therapy. I don’t know the result yet, but in Abingdon we all thought Thrupp Lake was destined for destruction. Against all odds it was saved by some valiant campainers. So whatever happens it has done well.

But the next stage is to make it a better place for wildlife and visitors, and so we await the result of the public vote. That money will give them a big boost.

People can vote by phone between 9 am and midnight. The vote costs 10p on BT landlines, and more from mobile phones.
