    Vote for lottery money for Wales

    You can vote for a Welsh project which intends to help people walk or cycle for everyday journeys.

    The sustainable transport charity Sustrans may have a silly name but it has a big idea. It is seeking support from the Big Lottery's £50 million fund for its project Connect2 which will take practical action to tackle climate change and reduce congestion. The project is made up of 79 schemes across the UK - nine of which are in Wales.

    Please log on to http://www.thepeoples50million.org.uk/ and vote for Sustrans’ Connect2 project, and get your friends, family and colleagues to do the same. I have voted for it.

    As well as getting people to exercise more, they want to tackle the obstacles presented by busy roads, railways or rivers which prevent people from walking and cycling for everyday journeys - to the shops, school, work etc.

    Sustrans faces tough competition from three projects across England and needs your help to create a healthier more sustainable future: just a minute of your time could make all the difference.

    Internet voting starts today and closes at 12 noon on Monday 10 December. There's also be a telephone vote on ITV1 on the weekend of December 7th, with the results expected on the 12th.
    Please help them - it's the only project which benefits Wales directly.
