VOTES are needed to help a charity win funding from NatWest.
Portsmouth-based Learning Links is up against 12 other organisations for grant of up to £35,000.
The charity works with struggling individuals and helps them find the skills, confidence and motivation to improve their lives.
If successful it would use the NatWest funding to give 70 long-term unemployed people the skills to start their own business through practical workshops.
Voting is now open and will remain open until midday on May 5.
