Big Lottery announces funding for celebration events

Big Lottery have launched a new Celebrate Fund offering grants of between £300 and £10,000 for groups to hold one off events or activities which celebrate their local communities.

There is a new application process for this funding stream which can be found at the Big Lottery website. The initial online part enables you to download the short application form which when completed you must send back with a recent bank statement.

There are no deadlines, but it is on a first come first served basis and the programme will close when the budget of £3.875m for England has been allocated.

Interested groups should in the first instance contact the Big Advice Line on 0345 4 102030.
