Make Stuff/MadLab is up for a 25k award from Aviva

Could you take a minute to vote for us, please?

You just need to give your email address and it's a (quick) two-stage process. If MadLab (with Make Stuff) gets the most votes, then we will automatically get to the panel.

You get 10 votes to cast - we'd be super appreciative if you gave all 10 to Make Stuff :)

Make Stuff reached 10 000 young people last year, in some of the most deprived areas of Greater Manchester. It showed young people the brilliantly creative possibilities of tech, coding, crafting, and making. The Big Chip Awards described it as "exemplary engagement across the north." We want to take Make Stuff to more people, but need investment to do so.

As you may know, we need to raise more funds, and this allows you to really help support our work.
