Charities across Suffolk have the chance to receive a share of £20,000 with our Cash For Charities campaign.
We have set up this initiative in a bid to support some of the most stretched charities in Suffolk and north Essex.
At a time where so many good causes need help after being hit by the coronavirus pandemic, we are asking you to help decide where the money should go.
So far nearly 40 local charities have signed up to win a share of the money.
Brad Jones, East Anglian Daily Times and Ipswich Star Editor, said: "The last year has reminded us - if we needed reminding - that without local charities, life would be an awful lot harder for so many people in our county.
"It has been inspiring to see organisations adapt over the last year to continue providing vital support to people in our local communities.
"But with fundraising severely curtailed, they need your support too - and Cash For Charities is a great way for our readers to back the good causes closest to them.
