Six out of ten people surveyed* say they cannot remember ever coming together to celebrate with their community. The Big Lottery Fund wants to help change this with our Celebrate! programme.
We 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’s a chance to bring people together to get to know their neighbours better.
Due to the huge success of Celebrate we have allocated an extra £4.1 million of funding to give even more local communities the chance to come together and celebrate
We now have a total of £7.695 million for projects in England.
What will you celebrate?
The deadline to submit a Celebrate application is noon, Friday 21 October 2016.
