Today the Stockport Express print the first token to help your favourite community group or charity claim their share of the £10,000 Vernon Jubilee Fund.

Further tokens will be published on August 16th and 23rd – with two tokens in the Express on August 30th. For the first time, you will also be able to vote online via our Facebook page.

The more tokens and online votes a group receives, the more funding it will get.

Tokens can be submitted to the charity or community group directly or dropped in at any of our six local branches – in the town centre, Bramhall, Marple, Reddish, Hazel Grove and Poynton.

This year’s programme will mean that since its launch in 2012 the Jubilee Fund will have awarded over £60,000 to more than 70 local charity and community groups.

Remember, the more votes a group receives, the bigger the share of the £10,000.
There are 16 groups vying for your vote. Click here for more information.
