Funding for activities in Bristol celebrating older people
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.
The Celebrating Age Festival runs throughout October. Previous festival activities have involved age-appropriate sports, arts and crafts; you might also consider activities based on nature, food, entertainment, or something completely different. What's important is that the activity is open to people aged 50+ and has old people at the centre, though younger generations may be welcome to join in as well.
Applications close at midday on Friday 9 August, and successful bidders will be contacted by 30 August 2019. Click here for more details.
