Welcome to What’s On & Online for 3rd June 2021, VocalEyes weekly listings of accessible events in-person and online. We start with a request for you to please support VocalEyes with some Charity funding.
Please nominate VocalEyes for Ecclesiastical funding
Ecclesiastical is once again making 500 awards to charities of £1000 each and is asking for nominations. The ‘winners’ are picked at random from all nominations submitted. If you’re happy to, we’d be most grateful if you would fill in a form, as the more nominations the more likely we are to be successful.
Only one nomination per individual is allowed and if you nominate more than one charity your nominations will be void. Only those over 18 are eligible to enter. It takes less than 5 minutes to fill in the form.
Nominations will be received between Monday, 24 May and Sunday, 13 June (at 23.59pm) on the Movement for Good website. VocalEyes is pre-selected at this link, you will just need to add your personal details.
