This year, it could be them.

This year, we launched a new award for a project that has used National Lottery funding to make an impact in their community.

We narrowed hundreds of nominations down to four and our panel of judges, led by ex-First Minister Lord Jack McConnell, chose the winner, who will be announced on the night. ANCHOR AND SAIL Run by the Galgael Trust and Clyde Maritime Trust, this group in Glasgow's Govan strive to protect the traditional skills of boatbuilding on the Clyde while giving vulnerable people a new sense of self-worth. A three-year project will see 200 people build four boats.

THE BIG BIG SING This nationwide group promote the health and wellbeing benefits of singing. One of The Big Big Sing's greatest success stories is Signed Songs R Us, a deaf choir from Dundee. They meet once a week and have nine regular members.

DATES 'N' MATES The dating and friendship agency run by and for adults with learning difficulties is helping dozens of Scots to meet new friends and, hopefully, new loves.

RAINBOW CARE VOLUNTEER PROJECT Twenty five years after a group of friends opened a day centre for the elderly, the Glasgow project provides a befriending service which matches caring and committed volunteers with elderly and isolated people.
