CHRISTMAS is on the way and your Journal and Gazette has once again teamed up with Bo’ness food giant Caledonian Produce, to reward great community causes with a seasonal cash boost of £2000, £1000 or £500.

The Caledonian Community Christmas Cracker launches today with three generous prizes funded by sales at Caledonian Produce’s staff shop.

Festive cheques will be presented shortly before Christmas to deserving projects, with the winners publicised on December 27.

Be quick, as all entries (via the official coupon,no photocopies accepted) must be in by noon on Monday, November 25.

The competition is open to individuals and not-for-profit groups based in the Journal and Gazette circulation area, be they sports teams, school clubs, pensioner associations, musical groups or the like.

Only one project application may be submitted per organisation, group, school, church or individual.

Crucially they must benefit the local community, or good causes further afield, and must exemplify one, or more, of Caledonian Produce’s five core values.

Carole Hollington of Caledonian Produce said: “We were overwhelmed by the response to last year’s competition with so many worthwhile projects in the community being highlighted.

“Caledonian Produce is delighted to be working again with local organisations to benefit the community and we hope this year will be as successful.

“Our core values are very important to us as we believe these are the basis for making our business and our employees successful, hence we are looking to support projects which demonstrate one or more of these values.”

Our readers will vote from November 29 to select the top ten groups they want to see in the final, and then a special judging panel will meet to select the winners.
