Activities in Bristol celebrating older people - Celebrating Age Festival
31 July, 2019

 

Funding of up to £250 is available to community groups and organisations who want to run activities celebrating older people, as part of the Celebrating Age Festival this October.

Your group or organisation may not necessarily focus on older people already - if this is your current focus, your activity must go beyond your usual work to be eligible, such as providing live music after a lunch club. You must also have a BS (Bristol) postcode.

The funding, called 'Above and Beyond', is provided by Age UK Bristol and St. Monica Trust.
