The Lions Den! - A chance for local community groups to win a small community grant  

We held our first Lions Den event (Community Grant event) on the 23rd May 2017. Eighteen local community groups came safely through the first stage and were invited to attend and enter the 'Lions Den'.

Our aim is to reach out to small local Reading community groups and small local Reading charities and award grants for local Reading community projects. We have 5,000 in total to distribute in small grants.

A big thank you to all those that took part. We hope the Lions weren't too scary!  

A big thank you to the Rivers Ibis Sports Club for providing the venue.

Third Stage: successful applicants will be notified by email and the grants will be distributed by the 30th June 2017.

All winners will be expected to provide feedback to us once the grant has been used. Take lots of photo's or take a 'phone video of your project and share this with us.

'Good luck to everyone taking part'
