Country Market X-citing Projects- who wins, you decide?
Country Market in Bordon launched its X-citing Projects Campaign back in 2013 and has so far donated £4,000 to local groups and charities.
The community campaign offers charities, organisations and projects in the local area the chance of winning £1,000 to spend on anything they would like that will help them to enhance their service.
After receiving multiple nominations for the February X-citing Projects donation, three finalists have been selected and it is up to members of the public to decide who will receive this month’s £1,000 offering.
The nominees are:
Woodlarks Camp Site Trust
Woodlarks Camp Site Trust provides camping holidays for disabled children and adults in Farnham.
The camp site boasts a zip wire with specially designed seats, a trampoline, a bird hide and a BBQ site as well as a heated swimming pool.
If Woodlarks received the £1,000 X-citing Projects fund, the money would go towards refurbishing the swimming pool changing rooms which are out of date and in desperate need of rebuilding.

The Ridgeway Community School
The Ridgeway Community School is a local authority maintained school catering for youngsters between the ages of 2 and 19 who have severe and/or profound multiple learning difficulties.
The school uses social and therapeutic horticulture and has so far seen incredible results. Staff and parents at the school are currently fundraising for a new wooden cabin to turn into an outside class room and have so far managed to raise £2,000 of their £3,500 target.
If the community school were to receive the £1,000 it would bring them closer to their overall target and enable them to build the wooden cabin in spring ready for use next new school year in September 2014.

Marlfield Nursing Home
Marlfield Nursing Home in Alton has been open since 2005 and specialises in Dementia care for the elderly.
Over the years, the carers at the home have been trying to raise funds to improve their courtyard by adding better seating and a sensory garden for the residents to enjoy.
By winning the £1,000 X-citing Projects fund the home will finally be able to create the beautiful garden space that they have been looking forward to for so many years.
Voting is easy, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the project you want to win in the subject box or call Tilly Bull on 01403 783400. Voting end midnight Sunday 2nd March.
