National Lottery money available for First World War
The Heritage Lottery Fund is making £2 million available this year for communities looking to explore, conserve and share local heritage of the First World War.

Local Wandsworth MP, Jane Ellison, who is also Financial Secretary to the Treasury, has highlighted the scheme which is making grants of between £3,000 and £10,000 available.

Communities throughout the UK have already been involved in activities marking the Centenary such as researching and recording local heritage, conserving war memorials and using digital technology to record stories and finds.

There are already more than 1,620 First World Projects taking place across the UK, thanks to more than £82million of investment from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
