Community groups, town and parish councils and voluntary organisations across North Lincolnshire can get up to £250 to help them commemorate the 80th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings and the Battle of Normandy in June 2024.

D-Day marks the historical date, 6 June 1944, of the largest naval, air and land invasion to ever be assembled and executed in history. It was the beginning of allied operations that ultimately helped bring the Second World War to an end.

Cllr Richard Hannigan, cabinet member for adults and health said: “We are extremely proud to be able to allocate specific funding to our communities to commemorate this monumental anniversary.

“It is essential that we continue to mark these major past events and remember the significance of D-Day in the history of the war and enable people to honour the sacrifices made all those years ago.”

Groups will be able to apply for grant funding, for their large or small community events, until 12 noon on Monday 22 January 2024.

For an application form please email communitygrants@northlincs.gov.uk.

Completed application forms need to be returned by email or by post to Governance and Communities, Church Square House, Scunthorpe, DN15 6NL.
