The voting campaign will start next month

Locals will have the chance to pick which charity could receive the lion’s share of £1,000 in a vote next month.

Chelsea Building Society’s charity choices campaign starts on May 9, and is asking residents to vote for their preference out of three local groups.

Foal Farm Animal Rescue Centre, based in Biggin Hill, the Association of Friends of Carlton, and Bromley Deaf for Children are all vying for votes.

The charity with the most votes will receive £500, while the runner-up will receive £300 and £200 will go to the third placed charity.

A grand total of £160,000 is being donated to various charities across the country as part of the campaign.

Manager at the Chelsea Building Society’s Bromley branch said: “We know how important our chosen three charities are to our local community so we’re delighted to be making a donation to help them continue their important work.

“Just how much they receive will be up to our customers and members of the public.”

Locals can vote by visiting the Bromley branch.
