Actavo in the Community


Entries close 5pm Friday 12th August 2016.

We’re calling for charities and community organisations to enter our Actavo in the Community competition campaign and be in with a chance to win much-needed funding and support.

Are you a community group in desperate need of hall repairs? Perhaps you are a charity that would like help putting on a fundraising event? Maybe your local youth group needs urgent funding?

To raise awareness of worthy projects such as these and directly help the work of volunteers, we’re in the last week of our nationwide search to find regional community projects and charities that we can help by providing £2,000 worth of equipment, labour or building materials.

To enter, simply fill out the online entry form with a short description of why you should win.

Five shortlisted entries will be announced on Friday, 19th August and you will be able to vote for your winner on the Actavo Direct website. The winning entry will be announced Friday, 2nd September.
