Dear LCCC supporter,
The Leith Chooses Event, a collaboration by the three Leith Community Councils, takes place next Saturday, 3rd March from 12noon till 3pm. With a pot of some £116K to distribute to Leith organisations, it has received 67 valid applications for funding; an all-time high! It shows how many dynamic organisations and individuals and exciting new ideas there are in Leith.
Who is going to win that funding will be decided through Participatory Budgeting, a process in which local people decide how to spend a public budget and to make this work we need as many volunteers as possible to help out on the day.
If you are happy to help out please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteers should be at the community centre for 10am on Saturday, 3rd for a briefing and allocation of jobs. We’ll need volunteers to help register voters, control ballot boxes, give advice to voters, point them in the right direction, etc, etc.
Should you know of anyone else happy to help with this community event please feel free to bring them along.
We want to make the day a great success and an enjoyable experience. There will be food and hot and cold drinks, face painting and balloons and as volunteers you will also be able to vote (see http://www.leithchooses.net/vote).
I look forward to hearing from you and hope to see you on the day,
With best wishes,
