Follow these three simple steps to cast your vote:
     1. Click here or paste this link into your browser http://skillsandopportunitiesfund.natwest.com/vote/

     3. Choose a project - look for School Food Matters and click on the vote button  

Your votes will mean that more children will get the opportunity to become market traders at Borough Market, London’s oldest and most renowned food market. Our Young Marketeers will develop enterprise skills by selling school-grown produce, or tasty soups created from surplus vegetables, to raise money for FareShare, the food surplus charity. Every £ raised by our Young Marketeers will enable FareShare to provide four meals for vulnerable families.
Please vote for us! And once you’ve voted, forward this email to your friends and family so that they can vote too!

Deadline for voting is Friday 9 November at 12 noon.
