National Lottery Grants Available

£100,000 of National Lottery funding is up for grabs to celebrate community spirit across the wider West Midlands region.

Following the huge success of the first Mayor’s Community Weekend last year, communities across the West Midlands – including Warwickshire – are being given double the cash to host celebrations this summer.

Grants of up to £500 will be on offer to groups across the region.

The aim of the Mayor’s Community Weekend on Saturday 29 June and Sunday 30 June 2019  is to bring people and communities together, to celebrate the experiences they share and make new memories. It will encourage people from all walks of life to build stronger community bonds and embrace community spirit by holding events such as a street party, a sports festival or a picnic in the park.

Communities can apply for funding from 9am on Friday 22 February to hold an event during the Mayor’s Community Weekend. Applications close at 9pm on Sunday 17 March.
