In November 2012 we were invited by the Big Lottery Fund to enter the Communities in Focus competition. We are absolutely delighted to receive the news that we had made it to the top 20 shortlist and that the judges loved our photograph. To view the winners and runners up click here. littlebirds

The competition had two categories, one for inspiring images of community life, and the other for photos of projects funded by the Big Lottery Fund making a difference. We immediately went through our archive of fantastic photographs that have been taken on our Big Lottery Aspiration Project and decided on the image to the right. We selected this image because the performance of The Wind Road Boys in front of over 1000 people had a big impact on the lives of our young people.
