A children’s club needs your votes to be in with a chance of landing a £3,000 prize pot.

Barking Kidz Klub has been shortlisted for the Lloyds Bank Community Fund in Barking and Dagenham, if chosen they will be one of only two candidates to win the grant in the borough.

The free club runs weekly activities at Gascoigne Primary School, Barking, and aims to combine fun and games for five to 11 year olds with “non-threatening” exploration of Christianity, said co-founder Muriel Kakoni.

“The Lloyds Bank Community Fund will make a huge difference to Barking Kidz Klub by enabling us to support local primary schools, making a difference to the lives of hundreds of children in Barking and Dagenham.

“Please vote for Barking Kidz Klub,” she said.
