Return of the Dragon!
Win funds for your community project!
Have you ever fancied making a bid for funds that would help your group or neighbourhood, like the contestants in ‘Dragon’s Den’? Or perhaps you would rather decide who deserves the money?
Three years ago GLPC arranged an open-to-all funding scheme, where local people bid for a share of a golden pot of £4,000. The rest of the community decided which projects won, and since then all the projects have been successfully completed.
Once again you can play both bidder and judge at the Return of The Dragon, thanks to another GLPC community funding scheme.
And this year we have plumped up the pot! Residents and groups can bid for a dip into a pot worth £4,500 in total.
There are six grants to pitch for:
2 ‘Mini Dragon’ Grants- up to £500 each
3 ‘Midi Dragon’ Grants – from £501 to £750
And 1 ‘Maxi Dragon’ Grant – from £751 to a maximum of £1500!
What can the grants be used for? Maybe to finance a local children’s project, provide equipment for group activities, repair or paint play equipment, improve a wildlife habitat, spruce up a neglected area or pond, plant bulbs or trees, start up a book, coffee or glee club, decorate a meeting room, buy equipment for a community group and so on.
