The National Lottery is celebrating its 25th Birthday by Bringing People Together.

The National Lottery is celebrating its 25th birthday by bringing people together.

They are offering people and communities with great ideas the chance to receive a grant 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 would 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 who 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.

Everyone who submits an application will be entered into the lottery draw, which will take place after the deadline closes at 2pm on Friday 6 December 2019. The Lottery will then run a few straightforward checks to make sure that applications meet their eligibility criteria and genuinely benefit the community.

They will have separate lottery draws for Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and within different regions in England to ensure a fair distribution of #CelebrateNationalLottery25 funding across the UK.

They hope to let you know by email whether you have been successful by 31 January 2020.
