THE winners of the £15,000 Cash For Your Community giveaway can now be revealed.
This year, an amazing 135 groups signed up for the chance to win their share of the fund in the Scunthorpe Telegraph's initiative with North Lincolnshire Council.
The prize money has been allocated according to how many coupons were collected by each group, with every group voted for receiving a share. Celebrating victory this year is the Scunthorpe Centurions ABC boxing club, who received £1,000.
Coach Kenny McGready said he was absolutely over the moon to take the greatest proportion of money from the campaign.
He said: "It will go towards the facilities and the kids sessions for eight to 10-year-olds.
"We are looking to get smaller gloves and punching bags.
"A lot of parents have collected vouchers for us, I want to message everyone to say thank you."
He added that the club had been among the most successful for three or four years and really appreciated the difference money from the campaign makes to grass root sports.
In second place were the Appleby Frodingham U13's Football Team, who received £750.
Head coach and manager Marlon Fell said: "In the past we have spent the money on the end-of-season presentation and trophies for the footballers.
"The money will also go towards sports kits, they are expensive and we have 32 players and obviously trying to cover that is difficult.
"I would like to thank all the parents, family members and friends who have collected for our teams and thanks to my assistant coaches, Steve Liddall, John Slater, Ryan Burton and Rob Wright."
Another group, who have taken part in the Cash For Community three times, are celebrating finishing joint third and receiving the greatest proportion of money they have ever had.
The Messingham Supporter Group in aid of the Lindsey Lodge were delighted to receive £700 to help them do even more good work for the hospice.
Chairman of the group, Valerie Outram, said: "It is unbelieveable, we are really delighted.
"This is our third time, before we've had smaller amounts, but this is wonderful, I had no idea it would be that much.
"I have got to thank the local community, they are very good in Messingham.
"We have lots of events to raise money for the hospice and the money will go towards hiring events and people for concerts and any equipment we need for our fundraising."
Also in third were the Broughton Wednesday Club, with £700. They put on afternoons of entertainment for pensioners every fortnight in Broughton.
Secretary Ann Smith said: "It will make so much difference to us.
"We'll be able to do more with the pensioners.
"I was amazed to get £700 because I actually didn't think we would do much this year, there weren't so many double and treble coupons and I thought we would be lucky if we got £300, and there was someone else in the village collecting for the campaign. I have to thank everyone - all the pensioners save the coupons, but we want to thank everyone that has collected for us."
North Lincolnshire Council leader Rob Waltham said: "We are pleased to support Cash For Your Community as it supports a great number of good community causes that encourage leisure, sport and fitness activities across North Lincolnshire.
"This is our fifth year supporting the Scunthorpe Telegraph's campaign and I am proud that we are able to see such a positive contribution being made to a number of voluntary groups across North Lincolnshire.
"The fact that people take the time to collect the vouchers means there is a great amount of community involvement in securing this money.
"From grandparents to teachers and young people, everybody contributes towards the success of this worthwhile project."
