COMMUNITY groups in the Devizes area have just a few more days to enter a Dragons Den-style contest to bid for up to £2,000 help towards their pet projects.

Devizes Lions Club is organising the Lions’ Den, in which organisations are given just a few minutes to make their pitch to a panel of Lions for a share of a pot of £4,000 for the best ideas.

The Lions are putting up £2,000, match-funded by the Community Foundation for Wiltshire and Swindon.

Lion Tony Scorer said: “The projects should be run by or for the benefit of the people of Devizes and the surrounding communities. Requests from individuals may be considered.”

The closing date for applications is March 24.
