Bath and North East Somerset charities in push for your votes
Charities hoping for the top prize in our WISH campaign are pulling out all the stops.
To be in with a chance of winning the maximum £5,000 prize money, groups need to secure as many votes from readers as possible.
Each of the 20 finalists in our community grants giveaway has received a competition pack, which includes posters and fliers.
These can be distributed across Bath and North East Somerset to ensure that more people see them and are encouraged to vote for the charity.

We have suggested that groups should get their local post office or supermarket on board, or ask if they can put up posters in doctors' and dentists' surgeries.
Social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter are a great way of getting the word out, and letting charities know how much they need community support.
Another tried and tested way to get attention is by tweeting a celebrity, and asking them to tweet support for a charity.
Finally word of mouth is a great way to gain support, so groups will be asking people involved with the charity to spread the word.
Prizes in the Wish campaign, organised by The Bath Chronicle and BMI Bath Clinic, include £5,000, £3,000, £2,000, six grants of £500, three of £400 and a further eight of £100.
Each shortlisted group, which include charities, sports clubs, schools and social groups, will get a minimum of £100.
How much more is up to the readers, who can vote for the group they feel is the most worthy by filling in the form on these pages.
The more votes a charity gets, the greater their chance of winning £5,000.
Winners will then be announced in the Chronicle on Thursday, March 21.
