THE annual search to find the UK's favourite Lottery-funded projects- and recognise the dedication of the people behind them- has begun.

People can vote for the projects that have made an impact on them or their community for The National Lottery Awards 2010, which will take place later this year.

Lisa Quinn, a spokesperson for the National Lottery said: “We want to hear about any Lottery-funded projects that have had a positive impact on the local area, made a real difference to people's lives or anyone who is personally involved in transforming their community with the help of lottery funding.”

The awards have seven categories, each reflecting the main areas of Lottery funding: arts; sport; heritage; health; environment, education, voluntary and charity projects.
