Get funding for your Platinum Jubilee celebration

From street parties to community events, Malvern Hills District Council and Spacehive are working together to bring ideas to life to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee this year.

Individuals, community groups and schools are being encouraged to pitch their project ideas to the crowdfunding platform Spacehive, to begin raising funds for their event.

Malvern Hills District Council has made £10,000 available for the Platinum Jubilee Community Fund, with up to £2,000 for each eligible project.

Projects can be one-off events taking place over the bank holiday weekend from 2 to 5 June or ongoing projects with a lasting legacy, from street parties and get-togethers to community murals and art exhibitions.

The council also has funding pots available including the People Make Places Fund, Destination Zero Community Fund and the Ward Budget Scheme which provides councillors with £500 per year to assist local projects financially.

Anyone interested in crowdfunding for their Jubilee project will need to launch their project on Spacehive by 15 March and raise the funds by 29 April.

Cllr Tom Wells, Deputy Leader and Portfolio Holder for Community Services at Malvern Hills District Council, said: "Crowdfunding is a great way of raising funds rapidly by connecting people and communities. This is the perfect opportunity to make your Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebration truly special and memorable. It's a prime example of the basis of our Connected Communities Strategy which aims to empower communities to come together and become strong and resilient".
