Colchester's Big Choice is now in its second year, and is a grant scheme which gives residents a voice in where £100,000 funding goes.

Organisations have submitted ideas for projects that will provide long-lasting benefit to Colchester's residents. Projects have either asked for £5000 or £20,000 funding and Colchester residents have been voting for their favourite. Voting is now closed.
Results of the public vote will be announced on Thursday 23rd March.
