A PROJECT aimed at spreading goodwill in Rotherham was feeling the love this week after being nominated for an award.

Love is Louder Rotherham is in the running for the People's Choice Award at the 2017 Epic Awards run by the organisation Voluntary Arts.

Now co-ordinators Rotherham Ethnic Minority Alliance need public votes to help them come out on top.

The Love is Louder project worked with people from all across the borough and engaged with over 75 different groups to challenge intolerance and division through creativity. 

Its work has involved a huge “artbomb” where 90 people installed decorations around town and the Festival of Angels, which involved hundreds creating their interpretations of angels.

Award winners will scoop a £250 cash prize, a specially-made trophy and a training support to take their projects to the next level.

Voting is open until March 5 at and the winners will be announced on March 19.
