A CHARITY needs people to get clicking and vote for them to win a diversity award.

New Hope, based in Wells Road, Ronkswood, Worcester is hoping it will scoop an accolade during the National Diversity Awards.

The charity, which works with families who have children with disabilities, is hoping to win the Community Organisation Award - Disability.

Manager Jean Wilson has urged people to visit the award's website at www.nationaldiversityawards.co.uk and vote for them.

New Hope has nearly 100 votes but Mrs Wilson is hoping to get more to secure a place at the prestigious awards ceremony held at The Hurlingham Club, London on Friday, September 26.

The ceremony celebrates some of the achievements of positive role models and community organisations from across the country.

She said: "At New Hope we believe passionately that disabled children should have the right to access leisure activities in their local community.

"We promote this right by offering a wide range of activities for our children to enjoy.

"It would mean the world to all of us at New Hope to win this award as it would recognise our work to promote inclusion for all the disabled children we support."

Nominations will close on Friday, July 18 and a shortlist of nominees will be announced shortly after.
