[Thursday 17 July 2008]

A WEBSITE dedicated to the Craven men and women who gave their lives in the Great War has scooped a major heritage award.

Prestigious award for CCPG's outstanding work.

Volunteers from Craven Community Projects Group (CCPG) reached the regional finals for Yorkshire & Humber in The Nationwide Community & Heritage Awards held at The Merchant Adventurers’ Hall in York last Friday (11 July).

The award was given in recognition of the volunteers' work on the website entitled, "Craven's Part in the Great War", which lists every man and woman from the Craven area who died in the First World War.

“Volunteers are particularly vital to the heritage sector and well over half of the 26,000 projects we have supported just could not have happened without them,” said Stephen Boyce, Deputy Director of Operations at the Heritage Lottery Fund.

“Our research tells us that in just two years we have funded projects involving 75,000 volunteers, who together gave over one million hours of their time to the UK’s heritage.”

The awards were judged by Nationwide Building Society, Business in the Community and The Heritage Lottery Fund.

The group received a handcrafted glass plaque and gift vouchers for their voluntary efforts. The national finals take place at The Tower of London on 11 November and further information about the website can be found at www.cpgw.org.uk
