Johnny Mercer MP is encouraging local community groups, neighbourhoods and clubs to consider applying for up to £10,000 of Big Lottery Fund money to ‘Celebrate England’.
Do you have ideas or plans for an event or activity to bring people together, celebrating your local community and what makes it special? If so, there’s an easy and straight forward application process and a total of £3.875m available on a first come first served basis.
Speaking about this brilliant opportunity, Johnny Mercer said:
“There is so much to celebrate in Plymouth. What is it where you live? It could be celebrating something from local history, a local community hero, to mark a special occasion, or simply to get to know your neighbours better. The Big Lottery Fund are offering up to £10,000 to make your big celebration happen.
“If you’ve got an idea and funding like this will help get it off the ground, I’d encourage you to apply. What are you waiting for?”
Applications for funding opened on 6 July 2016 and further information can be found on the Big Lottery Fund website: www.biglotteryfund.org.uk/celebrateengland
