Community groups invited to apply for grants to celebrate the National Lottery 25th anniversary
December 3, 2019
Community groups of two or more people have been invited to apply for a grant as part of the National Lottery’s 25th anniversary celebrations. The deadline for applications is Friday at 2pm and they are particularly keen to hear from people they haven’t worked with before. Here is some information from their website:
We’re marking The National Lottery’s 25th birthday by bringing people together.
We’re offering people and communities with great ideas the chance to receive a grant between £100 and £1,000.
If you have an idea for an event or community activity or even if you want to buy something, that will bring your community together – we’d love to hear from you.
Any group of two or more people with a great idea can apply. We’re particularly keen to hear from people we haven’t worked with before.
Join our celebration and apply today.
How will we choose who to fund?
#CelebrateNationalLottery25 is about people and communities joining in with our birthday celebrations.
We’re expecting a lot of people to apply so to give everyone a fair chance we will use a lottery process, randomly selecting the applicants to be assessed.
Before entering the lottery here’s a few things you need to know
Everyone who submits an application will be entered into the lottery draw, which will take place after the deadline closes at 2pm on Friday 6 December 2019. We’ll then run a few straightforward checks to make sure that applications meet our eligibility criteria and genuinely benefit the community.
We will have separate lottery draws for Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and within different regions in England to ensure a fair distribution of #CelebrateNationalLottery25 funding across the UK.
We hope to let you know by email whether you have been successful by 31 January 2020.
