Vote for the International Slavery Museum

Taken from their website;

The National Lottery Awards are an annual search to find the UK's favourite Lottery-funded projects. Around 28% of the money raised by Lottery players goes to Good Causes and the Awards are a great way to highlight how that funding has changed the UK for the better.

Public voting for The National Lottery Awards is now open. Click on a category below to read more about the 10 projects competing in each category, and to cast your vote. The first round of public voting closes at midday on 10 July.

The three projects in each category with the most votes will progress to the final round of public voting, which will run from 3-14 August.

Why am I telling you this?

Liverpool’s International Slavery Museum (ISM) has reached the semi-finals of The National Lottery Awards. It is one of just ten projects chosen from hundreds of entries to face a public vote to find the Best Heritage project, and is the only project representing Liverpool and the North West in this category.
