If you have an idea for a project to improve the culture or sport offer in your local community, then you could get up to £20,000 towards your target from the Lancashire Culture and Sport Fund.

Crowdfund Lancashire gives local communities and individuals a chance to create and support the projects which matter most to them. It will enable everyone to contribute towards their community - chipping in as little as £2 to help bring ideas to life.
