The ICG PR team has been working with management at The Mall Blackburn to promote an eight month campaign to award a Lancashire sporting or active leisure organisation with a £5000 grant.
Entries have been flooding in, with the final count standing at more than 2000, and the finalists are Salesbury Primary School Fossa Play Area Fund, Ramsey's ACE Kickboxing in Blackburn and Pioneer 79 Amateur Swimming Club in Accrington.
Substantial coverage was gained in the run up to the closing date, with the Lancashire Telegraph's dedicated 'Grass Roots' supplement printing the story and entry form in the weeks leading up to the deadline.
The battle for top spot has now commenced and ICG will be reporting all the latest news and voting updates throughout the summer.
