Vote today for Plymouth schemes which will help combat loan sharking
GROUPS who help victims of illegal money lenders could benefit from a share of £3,000 if voters come up trumps.
The Home Office illegal money lending team, based in Birmingham, wants organisations in Plymouth to bid for cash to support ideas that promote its work.
The team is looking for ideas that raise awareness of the dangers of using loan sharks, promote legal credit options and good financial management, or prevent crime and disorder linked to illegal money lending.
A shortlist of eight groups has now been drawn up and people are being urged to go along to St Aubyn library in Chapel Street, Devonport between 1pm and 4pm today to vote for four of the schemes. Each of the four winnners will receive £750 to carry out their plans to help victims of loan sharks. The groups include Barne Barton neighbourhood police team, the City of Plymouth Credit Union, Routeways, Oasis Project, Devonport neighbourhood police team, North Prospect neighbourhood police team, and Pembroke Street Estate Management Board.
