The four Scottish Lottery distributors, Big Lottery Fund, Creative Scotland, Heritage Lottery Fund and sportscotland have come together and created Celebrate – to offer Lottery funding support to communities across Scotland as they celebrate and are inspired by the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Celebrate has a budget of £4 million and will make grants from £500 to £10,000 to communities across Scotland to come together to hold arts, heritage, sports and local community celebrations of the 2014 Commonwealth Games. Celebrate will also support communities to celebrate the diversity of the Commonwealth and create a legacy of community and Commonwealth connections.
How can I Celebrate?
Celebrate will support new and existing events and activities that mark the 2014 Commonwealth Games through arts, heritage, sports and local community celebrations. It will fund local celebration events and activities which stimulate greater involvement in community activity and develop our understanding as citizens of the Commonwealth.
Celebrations can be a single one-off event or activities which end with a celebration event.
To achieve our aim we want to fund projects that meet one or more of the following outcomes:
- Communities come together through arts, heritage, sports and local celebrations of the Commonwealth Games.
- Communities celebrate the people, places and culture of the commonwealth.
