We’re marking The National Lottery’s 25th birthday by bringing people together.
We’re offering people and communities with great ideas the chance to receive a grant between £100 and £1,000.
Applications for #CelebrateNationalLottery25 have now closed.
If you’ve submitted an application you can still log on and download your form if you need it for future reference. We hope to let you know by email whether you have been successful by 31 January 2020.
How will we choose who to fund?
#CelebrateNationalLottery25 is about people and communities joining in with our birthday celebrations.
We’re expecting a lot of people to apply so to give everyone a fair chance we will use a lottery process, randomly selecting the applicants to be assessed.
Before entering the lottery here’s a few things you need to know
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. We’ll then run a few straightforward checks to make sure that applications meet our eligibility criteria and genuinely benefit the community.
We 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.
We hope to let you know by email whether you have been successful by 31 January 2020.
