Lottery fund for WW1 local projects

Corri Wilson, MP for Ayr, Carrick and Cumnock, is urging constituents to apply to the Heritage Lottery Fund for community projects aimed at learning more about the First World War.

The Centenary of the First World War is a chance to understand the war, uncover its stories and explore what it means to us today, and the Heritage Lottery Fund is supporting projects across the UK that focus not just on the events of 1914-1918, but also on the lasting changes the war brought about.

HLF is making at least £1m a year available until 2019 as part of the First World War: Then and Now programme for small, community grants. It provides grants of £3,000 to £10,000 enabling groups to explore, conserve and share their First World War heritage and deepen their understanding of the impact of the conflict.
