It’s all happening next Monday


No doubt you’ve heard about our bid to win £50,000 from the People’s Millions on Monday 25 November. But have you registered to be reminded to vote yet?

Text HALL to 66777 now to receive a reminder to call in our gripping ‘phone vote next Monday. That’s right – one week to go. Help us bag the big prize to repair our leaky, creaky roof.

What can YOU do to make it happen?

Find 10 friends
Ask them (ever so nicely) to text HALL to 66777. If they can find ten more friends each, well, that would be extremely impressive.

Vote 10 times
On every ‘phone line you can get your sticky paws on. We’re allowed! Calls cost just 11p from a BT landline, more from mobiles. Tell your mates too.

Use 10 different ways

  • Spread the word, your way.
  • Get social – Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
  • Get personal – call, email and text.
  • Get more people – chat to neighbours, colleagues and club networks.
  • Shout from the rafters!

Frankly, we stand to win a massive cash injection that would take us about 10 years of fundraising events to drum up. In one night. It’s got to be worth it.

Got an hour to spare? Email [email protected] and join campaign HQ on Monday 25 November. We’d be over the moon.

Don’t forget to watch Exeter Street Hall on ITV’s Meridian Tonight at 6pm on voting day. Exciting! Can we win £50,000? Together, we can. Please help.

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.

If you’d like to help or have ideas about how we could win then please email us at [email protected].
