To get a £50,000 prize from a link between the National Lottery and Granada TV, Start needs everyone in Salford to vote for it during a Granada Tonight broadcast on 22nd November that goes out between 6pm and 6:30pm.

During the show a phone number will be given out, and all anyone has to do to support the great work that Start does is to pick up the phone and vote for it or vote via the People's Millions websitesee here. You can also actually vote at any time from 9am- midnight on the 22nd via the website too.

"Start in Salford's project involves transforming a disused space in the centre of Buile Hill Park into a thriving community growing space" says a Start spokesperson "Our work would enhance the park, increase its use, and enable members to work alongside the community to grow their own fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers."

Sound a top idea? Get voting on the 22nd November when Start is in competition with Liverpool's Oakmere Community College `Voyage of Discovery'.

All Start In Salford has to do is get more votes than Oakmere on the night and its project, Start in The Park, gets funded!
