Support us at the PIP Awards

A £20k pot of funding is available for community and social enterprises in Lancaster. Nine organisations are bidding for funding of up to £3k. Lancaster People’s Cafe is one of those organisations.  We would be very pleased if you would come and support us.  The event is taking place on Thursday February 4th at The Storey on Meeting House Lane in Lancaster.  It’s an early evening event from 6pm to 9pm.

The way it works on the night is that each organisation makes a short, 4 minute presentation. Afterwards, there might be questions from the audience and questions from an expert panel. When each organisation has made their bid, then there will be voting. Audience members have a score sheet and they score each organisation’s bid from 1 to 5. The expert panel also scores the bids 1 to 5. The audience votes count for 60% of the total, the expert panel’s votes count for 40%. So you can see that we’d love to have as many people along as possible, to give us some moral support and to vote for us! You’ll also hear about other interesting projects in the local area. It should be a good night and we hope you’ll come along. You can register for free tickets here:
