Clydesdale Bank has extended the deadline for Dumfries and Galloway groups entering the Spirit of the Community Awards 2018 by two weeks until Tuesday, April 3.
As well as giving groups more time to enter, the Bank announced it will present one of the successful organisations with a Special Recognition Award, worth an additional £5,000.
Now in its sixth year, the 2018 Awards will take the total donated to community groups across the UK to more than £1 million.
The Bank makes donations to recognise and support community projects which are going the extra mile. Registered charities and not for profit organisations are invited to enter their projects now.
Five projects will be selected in each of the three categories and all 15 winners will be awarded £5,000 each.
