Have your say on how to spend £1million in town

Warrington Guardian: Have your say on how to spend £1million in town Have your say on how to spend £1million in town

RESIDENTS in Latchford can have their say on how they want to see £1million of National Lottery funding spent.

St Margaret’s Community Hub, on Lindley Avenue, will be hosting an open day where you can put forward your ideas - whether it is building a healthier community for older people, helping people into work or building better environments.

The session runs on Wednesday from 2pm to 5pm and there will be activities for children including a visit from Wolfie, drinks and refreshments followed by a bingo night from 7pm with a £100 jackpot.

I was under the impression that in order to get Lottery funding, you had to have a viable scheme already planned and then put forward a strong business plan before waiting to see if if the funding would be awarded to you.
AFAIK, they don't just hand out £1M and then let you divvy it up as you see fit.
Frankly, from the article above, I don't see how they can even guarantee to bingo jackpot.

How can I get £1m lottery cash before I know what it's going to be use for?

Can WG please elaborate - quickly so I can get on with organising my meeting?
