The council had received an approach from the Scunthorpe Telegraph offering the opportunity to be involved in the Cash for Your Community promotion, which would run in the paper for 11 weeks.

The report provided confirmation that the council and the Scunthorpe Telegraph would both contribute £10,000.

Cheques for the winners would be issued by Northcliffe Media in the New Year, and representatives from North Lincolnshire and Scunthorpe Telegraph would present the top three winners of the competition with their cheques.
