Nineteen groups faced each other in three categories – Education and Young People, Health, Wellbeing and Social, and Community & The Arts.
Now the finalists will find themselves in thespotlight as representatives from each community group are invited to pitchtheir ideas to a voting audience at The Theatre on the Hill, St John's School, Marlborough on Thursday, September 27 from 7pm.
The community group from each category that receives the most votes on the night will walk away with £1,000.
And all of the nine finalists will get a share of another £1,000 over the first three months of the new forecourt opening.
Customers will be given a token each time they shop, to vote for one of three organisations per month. Each of these threeorganisations will get a share of £1,000, proportional to the amount of tokens they receive in-store.
