Corby Nightlight won £1,000 through Skip of Gold last year

It is providing local sports clubs and community projects with another opportunity to win £1,000.

Jon Stump, finance director at Mick George Ltd, said: “Skip of Gold is an initiative which allows us to delve a little deeper to uncover what it is the people of Northamptonshire and the surrounding areas are involved in, so we can invest our money in projects that will directly benefit them.

“Having witnessed first hand how this competition has positively impacted on the winners from previous years, we’re keen to launch the 2018 campaign.”
