'Congratulations to Worcester Snozelen on winning the People's Millions!


A DISABILITY charity in Worcester is one step away from a major funding boost – but needs the people of Worcestershire to vote for it.
Worcester Snoezelen is a finalist in The People’s Millions programme and will receive almost £50,000 if it gets enough public backing on Wednesday (November 26).
The St John’s based charity will create a specialist activity area for children and adults with disabilities if it is victorious in its head-to-head contest with Focus Birmingham.
Jane Roberts, chief officer of Worcester Snoezelen, said: “We are really hoping the people of Worcestershire support us and pick up the phone to vote.
“Birmingham Focus is a much bigger charity than us but it would be amazing if we could win against the odds.
“We are a small charity that has a big impact and this money would make a huge difference to the lives of our users, as well as encourage even more people to benefit from our services.
“I hope that the lasting legacy of being part of The People’s Millions initiative is for us to have a higher profile in the county and that it will help with our ongoing fundraising.
“We like to think that Worcester and Worcestershire are behind us in this voting competition.”
