Borough Council of King's Lynn & West Norfolk Commemorating World War 1 Fund

*Open for applications now*

Deadline for applications 5pm, Friday 11 May 2018

King’s Lynn & West Norfolk Borough Council has created a new one-off fund to help communities in the Borough to commemorate the end of World War 1.

Any non-profit group is able to apply, including constituted voluntary and community groups, Parish and Town Councils, charities, churches, social enterprises/ Community Interest Companies and schools. 

The Fund is able to consider a wide range of projects, which may include:

  • Community events and projects
  • Educational activities
  • New memorials
  • Refurbishment of existing memorials

The fund will not support:

  • Trips and visits of any kind

The Fund is able to support both capital and revenue costs, and a maximum award of £250 will be offered.  

Priority will be given to projects that are able to evidence match funding. 

Applicants seeking support for capital projects, such as new memorials etc, should ensure that all necessary permissions have been secured prior to making an application.  Proposals should be realistic, and show evidence of project costs.  

Projects do not need to complete within 12 months, though a timescale for delivery/ completion should be stated in the application.  All those who receive a grant will be requested to add the Borough Council logo with the words ‘supported by’ added to any publicity.

When to apply
Grants will be awarded in one funding round – the deadline for applications is Friday 11 May 2018, and decisions will be made in June.
