Funding available to Crewe residents to support Jubilee celebrations

March 29, 2012 by  

Residents of East Cheshire will be able to celebrate the Queen’s diamond jubilee in style this June thanks to a series of grants that have been made available to fund community gatherings.

Local people in Crewe and the surrounding area are able to apply for a grant of up to £100 to help fund their community parties and celebrations to commemorate the Queen’s diamond jubilee. The funds are being made available thanks to the Cheshire Community Foundation, a recently-established organisation designed to promote community spirit in the area.

The grants have been made possible thanks to a donation from the Westminster Foundation, which is a charitable fund overseen by the Duke of Westminster, whose seat is based in Cheshire. The grant application processors have already seen several requests being made, with around 170 events having been registered throughout East Cheshire to date.

These grants could be used for a number of items that are essential to the party-planning process, such as venue hire, catering or decorations. Organisers may also choose to produce promotional materials to publicise their events, using local printing companies who can create promotional merchandise using full colour printing.

Crewe and the wider East Cheshire region will be gearing up to the Queen’s jubilee celebrations with a warm up event, as the Olympic torch procession will pass through the region in the days leading up to the Jubilee. This occasion would be an ideal time to publicise local community events that are being held to celebrate this moment in history.
