With over 4,000 votes submitted so far for our 2019 Community Awards, our 14 finalists are getting fantastic support but still need your help!

After a challenging shortlisting period, we have placed the fate of our 14 finalists in the hands of the public. Community Awards funding is allocated on a tiered system where 1st place receives £1,500 and 14th £250. That's why every single vote brings your favourite cause one step closer to much needed funding.

Voting will run until 30th September 2019. During this time the general public is invited to vote for the organisations that they believe will provide the most benefit to the Stockport community. A list of all organisations, a description of what they intend to use the funding for and a voting form is available at www.thevernon.co.uk/vote. You can also place your votes in person at any of the Vernon’s six local branches across Stockport, all of which can be found on their website: www.thevernon.co.uk/BranchFinder.aspx.
