TWO good causes in Huntingdonshire could be in line for tens of thousands of pounds of funding in a televised Lottery bid.
The two groups will go head-to-head with similar projects to compete for public votes and a slice of £7.8million in the People's Million, a regional version of The People's £50 Million Lottery Giveaway.
Groups, who have been selected to take part in the show, could win awards of up to £80,000 each for their community-based projects.
Taking place the whole of next week on ITV1 at 6pm, each night two projects will battle it out to try and persuade viewers to vote for them. At the end of the week, the five projects with the most public votes will win a share of the cash.
