People’s Millions helps Scottish projects bring plans to life

The People’s Millions was back for another year and, over three nights last week, six projects battled head to head on STV regions, North, West and East, for a life changing grant.

Each night three projects won the public vote and there was a special bonus award in each of the regions for the project with the most votes across the week.

This is the eighth year that the Big Lottery Fund, ITV and STV have given the public the chance to choose where Lottery good cause cash goes in their region.

Big Lottery Fund Director for Scotland, Jackie Killeen, said, “This year over half a million pounds has been awarded to good causes by the public through The People’s Millions in Scotland. I am sure these imaginative and deserving projects will captivate communities across the country, and make real differences to people’s lives.”

Gordon Macmillan, Head of News at STV, said: “Congratulations to all the winning projects for their hard work and a big thank you to all the STV viewers who picked up the phone and helped to change the lives of people in their local community. I look forward to doing this all again next year.”
