Funding available for VE Day celebrations
We're offering £250 per organisation for street parties and events during the VE Day commemoration weekend (8-10 May 2020).
As VE Day dawns on 8 May 2020 it will be 75 years since the guns fell silent at the end of the Second World War in Europe. To commemorate this important event a national three-day celebration will take place from 8 May to 10 May 2020.
Friday 8 May 2020 has been designated by the Government as a Bank Holiday to enable as many people and organisations as possible to take part in the VE Day weekend of the 8 – 10 May 2020, providing an opportunity to pay personal tribute to those who gave so much to ensure we all enjoy the freedom we have today. https://www.veday75.org/
With a theme of ‘Invoke the War time spirit and make do and mend’ - why not use local produce, be plastic free, make re-usable decorations and make it a ‘car-free’ day?
