Last day tokens push can clinch it.
For the past six weeks, the Chronicle has been printing Fix It! tokens as part of our giveaway.
Excited groups throughout the North East have been collecting them, hoping to win up to pounds 5,000.
Every day, we've featured one of more than 250 groups taking part in the competition and shown what a difference winning would make to them. Some of those we've featured are pictured.
Groups dream of winning cash to help them get a new minibus, computer equipment, day trips, new gardens and library books.
North Fawdon Primary School, on Brotherlee Road, Newcastle, has been busy gathering tokens in a bid to scoop pounds 2,500 for developing school grounds.
Fawdon head, Lorraine Alexander, said: "We are half-way through the project and have markings on the grounds.
"We want to create an outdoor classroom, which is an environment where youngsters can learn as well as have fun.
"We are looking for funds to buy a canopy to go across from one building to another to act as an all-weather play area with physical and creative activities.
"The plan is to have seating, benches, a sand pit and water tray for all children to make use of."
There are 200 pupils at the school, aged from three to 11.
You can help to boost their appeal by sending tokens to them.
All the registered groups now have until Wednesday, November 5, to get their entry forms in to the Chronicle. We have moved the deadline from October 31, until after the school Autumn break. Those who have collected the most tokens win up to a pounds 5,000 share of our pounds 50,000 jackpot.
Barclays Bank and the Chronicle have joined hands for this promotion. Both have each put pounds 25,000 into the prize fund.
