Vote now for the Gazette’s Jam Jar Army appeal, one of 30 campaigns nationwide in the running for the Making a Difference crown.
Launching today at the start of the Newspaper Society’s Local Newspaper Week, the Making a Difference campaign will highlight the power of local media – in print, online, on mobile and social media – to achieve positive change.
Vote for the Jam Jar Army from now until midnight on Wednesday.
The winner will be announced as a special award at the Society of Editors Regional Press Awards in London on Friday.
The Jam Jar Army was launched in 2011, raising money for HospiceCare North Northumberland.
The following year, the Alnwick Playhouse Youth Theatre was the beneficiary and dog charity SHAK won the reader vote for 2013.
Each year, our readers have helped to smash the £10,000 target, raising more than £40,000 so far.
This year’s charity is The Stephen Carey Fund, which is raising money to provide defibrillators and other life-saving equipment and training to north Northumberland.
