King’s Lynn & West Norfolk Borough Council has created a new one-off fund to help communities in the borough of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk to celebrate VE Day on 8 May 2020 and VJ Day on 15 August 2020.

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

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 £100 will be offered.

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

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

All those who receive a grant will be requested to add the Borough Council logo with the words ‘supported by’ added to any publicity.
