Chair, Ruby Hartshorn is delighted but as she told SDN Board Members, the hard part starts now. 

To receive a share of the £20,000 prize fund we need to collect voting tokens (minimum of 500), which be printed in the Shropshire Star newspaper  from March 1 to April 7, 2018.

The first prize of £5,000 will be awarded to the group collecting the highest number of in paper voting tokens, the second prize is £2,000 and third £1,000. Then the remaining groups in positions 4 to 35 will receive a share of £12k based on the total number of voting tokens they collect. The minimum prize awarded is £50.

SDN now needs all our members, families and friends to help us by getting your families, friends and work colleagues to collect the tokens for us.
