Celebrate – England
The Big Lottery Fund has announced a new £5m grant programme for communities across the UK to celebrate what makes their local place great. They are offering grants of between £300 and £10,000 for groups to hold one off events or activities which celebrate their local community. You could celebrate something from your community’s history or a local hero. Or maybe it could a chance to bring people together to get to know their neighbours better. Applications are assessed on a first come, first served basis until all funds are awarded. More >
