The finalists for this year’s Skip of Gold competition have been announced and voting lines are now open.

Huntingdon-based Mick George, in partnership with The Hunts Post, is offering both sports clubs and community organisations the chance to win £1,000 to spend on a project of their choosing.

After receiving scores of applications, a set of shortlists have been decided and the organisations and clubs now need your votes to stand a chance of winning the £1,000 prize.

Here’s how it works:

Voting lines will be open from March 22 through to April 19 for supporters of each of the shortlisted organisations to cast their votes.

The organisation that receives the most votes from each category will be awarded the prize fund, with the winner announced on May 3.
