Win your group a slice of cash
LESS than a week remains before the door slams shut to nominations in the huge '£££s for People' campaign.
The Herald has teamed up with the Plymouth Drake Foundation and Devon Community Foundation to offer a massive £10,000 to grassroots city charities and voluntary groups.
Any one of hundreds could be in for a welcome slice of the cash – from local youth clubs to organisations helping the disabled, homeless and hard-up.
Nominations have already been arriving at The Herald's Derriford HQ.

But there are now just six days left to make sure your favourite voluntary group does not miss out.
Simply turn to page 30 of today's Herald to fill out a nomination form – and make sure you return it before Wednesday, October 10.
All you have to do is include a separate sheet of paper explaining in no more than 150 words why you have nominated your chosen group.
All voluntary, community and charitable groups are eligible for nomination, as long as they are based in Plymouth and help city people.
The final list will be published in The Herald in November, when readers will get to vote for the most worthy recipients of cash.
The top groups will then go through to the final stages, where each will get a minimum £100 slice of the £10,000 kitty.
The more votes a group gets, the bigger share of the pot they will receive.
The partnership with the Plymouth Drake Foundation will come to a head just before Christmas when it will be announced how the money is to be split.
