Forever Manchester are offering 100 awards of £100 to help community groups across Greater Manchester celebrate Christmas together.
Connecting Communities at Christmas welcomes applications from grassroots community groups based in any of the ten boroughs of Greater Manchester.
Applicants must be from a community organisation with their own bank account, or know a community organisation willing to accept an award on your behalf. Funds cannot be paid into personal bank accounts.
What can you apply for?
That is up to you, Forever Manchester have suggested a few ideas:
- Community Christmas trails for people to follow, e.g. houses could dress windows for each day of advent or people could make snowmen to put in their windows for people to find – you could create a map and post it through everyone’s doors
- Traditional Christmas parties with Santa and a festive lunch
- Online bingo or quizzes with themed questions and prizes
- Virtual Christmas Afternoon Tea – create packages of tea bags/cakes/snacks to leave on doorsteps and enjoy together online
Deadline: 19 November 2021, 12pm
