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 their Celebrate! programme.
They 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.
There is a total of £3.875m for projects in England.
What will you celebrate?
