Help us to Raise the Roof!


The £50,000 prize

Exeter Street Hall is in the running to win a £50,000 grant. Exciting! The People’s Millions is a partnership between Big Lottery Fund and ITV, where the public help decide which local community projects get lottery funding. Pick us!

Our story so far

Last year, local residents pulled together to rescue our much-needed local Hall and keep it as a vital, vibrant hub for our community.


We’re creating an inclusive space where everyone feels they belong, including some of society’s more vulnerable groups. We’re all about community cohesion and transforming everyday lives.

Our challenge? The existing roof is 136 years old. It’s leaky, creaky and won’t last much longer. Help us to raise the roof by voting for Exeter Street Hall in a telephone vote.

How can you help us to win big?

  • Check here for the telephone number from 9am on Monday 25 November.
  • You can call up to 10 times on each ‘phone line! Convince all your friends. Go on. We know you’re popular. Calls cost no more than 11p per call from BT landlines. Calls from other networks may be higher and from mobiles will be considerably more. Lines close at midnight.
  • Watch our TV segment on ITV’s Meridian Tonight in the evening.

Worried you’ll forget? Just text HALL to 66777 now. Standard rates apply. We’ll text you a reminder with the telephone number on voting day. All part of the service.

Can we win £50,000? Together, we can. Please help us. It will take three minutes and cost you just £1.

We’ve bought the Hall. Together. Let’s raise the roof. Together.
