Karl calls on groups in Lincoln to apply for Lottery Funding

Lincoln’s Member of Parliament, Karl McCartney JP MP, has today joined the Big Lottery Fund in calling on community groups in Lincoln to apply for funding to hold events or activities that will bring people together and celebrate what makes their local community special.


It could be to celebrate something in Lincoln’s local history or a local community hero, to mark something important to their community like Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th Birthday, or simply to get to know their neighbours better.


Karl McCartneyJP MP, Lincoln’s Member of Parliament, said: “We have some fantastic local groups in our City and I welcome this opportunity for them to secure up to £10,000 of Big Lottery Fund money.


“I am delighted that the Big Lottery Fund supports the work of hundreds of small charities across Britain, and I look forward to Lincoln being a part of its continued successes.”


Applications for funding open on 6 July 2016 and further information can be found on our website at www.biglotteryfund.org.uk/celebrateengland.
