The National Lottery has just launched a new fund, with the theme of "bringing people together" to celebrate its 25th birthday
Grants are available of between £100 and £1,000. If you have an idea for an event or community activity or even if you want to buy something that will bring your community together, they'd love to hear from you. Any group of two or more people with a great idea can apply. They are particularly keen to hear from people they haven't worked with before.
They are expecting a lot of people to apply so to give everyone a fair chance they will use a lottery process, randomly selecting the applicants to be assessed. The assessment will involve a few straightforward checks to make sure that applications meet the eligibility criteria and genuinely benefit the community.
You will, however, need to be quick because the lottery draw will take place after the deadline closes at 2pm on Friday 6 December 2019. You can enter here . It hoped to let applicants know by email whether they have been successful by 31 January 2020.
