National Lottery Community Fund’s 25th Birthday
The National Lottery Community Fund have launched a brand-new fund to distribute grants of £100 to £1,000 to fund ideas that bring people together during The National Lottery’s 25th birthday year.
How and when to apply
The application window is just two weeks, so please encourage people to apply quickly. It closes at 2pm on Friday 6 December.
Who can apply
There’s no need to be part of a formal group to apply. Applicants just need to be in a group of two or more to apply.
We’re particularly keen to hear from people who haven’t received funding from The National Lottery before.
What you can apply for
We’re looking to fund events, activities, or item costs, between £100 and £1,000 that will bring people together between 1 February and 18 November 2020. That could be a pensioner’s club hosting a bowls tournament, a school’s PTA organising a cinema trip or a group of neighbours gathering for a tea party.
