Our £10,000 Jubilee Fund giveaway will be awarded to successful local charity and community groups at a presentation evening to be held on 2nd November 2017.
 
The funding will allow these organisations and volunteers to continue to deliver their invaluable work to the local community with Stockport Express readers and Facebook voters having determined each group’s share of the £10,000 fund.
 
Each group was guaranteed to receive £100 from the Jubilee Fund, with the remaining £8,400 shared by public vote. This year each vote was worth £1.92 to the charity and community groups involved.
