Do You Know A Great Briton In Bucks?
3:01pm 26th July 2012
2012 is proving to be an amazing year for Britain - and with inspirational sporting, cultural and celebration events organised and run by ordinary folk over the summer, many people have found a way to feed off the excitement of the many celebrations this year to help others.
The "Great Britons In Bucks" project are celebrating the many people doing something amazing for charity this Summer - by taking their portrait photograph, creating a collection of inspiring fundraisers. It's designed to help them promote their event or activity and generating even more publicity and donations for their chosen cause.
If you run a charity organisation, the Project want you to nominate someone to appear on your behalf, giving even more visibility to your charitable aims. Click HERE to let the project know who is doing something fantastic for charity.
Project co-ordinator Danny Higgins told Mix 96: "The more people that get involved, the bigger the potential support we can gain for the project and the greater the donations we hope to achieve - keep your eyes peeled for exciting news of how your fundraising efforts might become bigger than you expect. "Great Britons" is our way of waving the flag for the people who are doing amazing things for others. So get in touch and let us share your story."
