GIVE LONDON A LIFT
PAUL MERSON IS HELPING US GIVE LONDON A LIFT!
Arsenal and England legend Paul Merson has helped kick-start a campaign which will see London-based charities, community groups, clubs and sports teams share a £10,000 prize pot. The 98-goal Arsenal hero turned popular Sky Sports pundit has given his backing to the revamped Give London a Lift campaign.
Last year we gave away £10,000 to local charities and good causes, to help to spruce up their facilities.
Paul Merson: “I’m delighted to be involved in this year’s Give London a Lift campaign, which gives groups in London the chance to revitalise their buildings and facilities. It’s a really tough time for charities, community groups and clubs at the moment and funding is hard to come by. These DIY materials from Leyland SDM will make a real difference and provide a significant lifeline. I’m looking forward to seeing the end results from all the winners.”
Give London a Lift will run between May and September, and we'll give away two prizes of £1,000 Leyland SDM credit each month.
Groups can apply for prizes to help them open new premises, recover an existing building from a state of disrepair or any other project which benefits the community. To apply, fill in your details below and let us know what your organisation does, how the prize will benefit the local community and how you would spend £1,000 credit. Winners will be chosen by a team of judges each month and we will email the lucky winners.
