Get behind Shevington Sharks!

Get behind Shevington Sharks!

Voting has now closed - finalists announced on November 28.

Shevington Sharks are close to their target as they bid to win £25,000 in the Aviva Community Fund - here's how you can help them get over the line.

They have been campaigning to pick up enough votes to reach the 'final' of their group, which will provide vital funds to develop Rugby League in their area.

They are currently fourth out of 7,000 projects.

It takes two minutes to register and vote.

The Sharks want to develop a virgin field to provide a vibrant hub for sport in Shevington - with plans for playing fields, facilities, a kitchen and more if they are successful with their bid.

Due to a high volume of voting elsewhere, Cramlington Rockets are now all-but out of the running for funding.

Jeff Ball, Rockets' Chairman, would like to thank everyone who has voted for them, and wishes Shevington the best of luck.
