Get voting now

IF YOU would like to see a new festival of arts and culture for the older generation in the district get voting now!

More Music is a finalist in the Lottery-funded People’s Millions awards with its bid for “My Generation: A festival of art, music and culture by and for the young at heart”, and is urging people to vote for them today, Monday, June 27.

The voting number for People’s Millions is 0871 626 88 36.

An ITV film crew arrived in the resort recently to film a public appeal by More Music and its older users, which will be broadcast on Granada Reports on Monday as it goes head-to-head with other charities to secure the funding.

“Every person who votes for us is showing faith in the idea,” said Pete Moser, artistic director at More Music.

“Every vote counts and, if we win, it will bring excitement, anticipation and good times for the older generation.”

A spokesperson said: “Please all vote 10 times for this and spread the word around family, friends, colleagues and so forth. We really need to pull out all the stops to win. We are head-to head against another charity on this so every vote counts.

“We have between 9am and midnight to get as many votes as possible. You can vote 10 times from every line. Calls cost 11p from a BT landline, other networks and mobiles may be higher.

“More Music will appear on ITV Granada Reports tonight (Monday) with a public appeal for votes.”
