Small grants for National Lottery anniversary celebration
The National Lottery Community Fund has announced that it will be making a special £7.5 million pot of funding available to mark The National Lottery’s 25th birthday. The fund, CelebrateNationalLottery25, will help communities celebrate the extraordinary impact the National Lottery has had since its launch in November 1994. Thanks to National Lottery players, £40 billion has been raised for good causes so far, funding over half a million (565,000) projects across the UK. The #CelebrateNationalLottery25 funding will support activity designed to bring people and communities together all over the UK. Up to £2 million will be made available this year in small grants of up to £1,000. The remainder will be released to the sector through the Fund’s National Lottery Awards for All programme. #CelebrateNationalLottery25 will be open to applications in November, with further details to come on how to apply.
