Communities across the West Midlands, have the opportunity to host celebrations funded by the National Lottery, thanks to a new partnership between the West Midlands Combined Authority and the Big Lottery Fund.

£50,000 of National Lottery funding is available for people in the West Midlands to celebrate community spirit!  The first ever Mayor’s Community Weekend will take place on Saturday 30 June and Sunday 1 July, in partnership with West Midlands Combined Authority.

The Big Lottery Fund is offering grants of up to £500 for the #WMCommunity to hold celebratory events – a great opportunity for everyone from inner city Birmingham to rural Herefordshire to come together, make new memories and share experiences!

Projects can apply for funding from 9am on Thursday 29 March.
