Workshop to help you get heritage funding


A workshop is set to take place which aims to help people create an organisation or project to look after or engage heritage.

The free Hurrytage Workshop, taking place between 2-4pm tomorrow (Thursday) at the Blenkin Memorial Hall, on Wormgate, is being run by Lincolnshire Community and Voluntary Service.

It will look at grants, especially Start-Up Grants where the deadline is closing in for applications to Heritage Lottery Fund.

Ruth Copleston, senior community development and volunteering officer, said: “This is aimed at groups who are new to heritage funding – and ‘heritage’ covers a wide range, from preserving ancient buildings to 
capturing older people’s memories and having an exhibition about your local area’s history.

“The Start-up Grants programme is ending in its current form soon but there’s still time to apply and we know Heritage Lottery Fund is keen to receive applications.”

Heritage Lottery Fund Start-up Grants of between £3,000 and £10,000 can help in the early stages of planning your activities.

The LCVS workshop will also provide valuable guidance for those who may wish to apply to the replacement funding programme 
when it opens and for Transition Funding - of up to £100,000.
