Coronation community fund

Coronation community fund 

The Coronation Fund has now been fully allocated and is closed to applications.

Residents, organisations and businesses in Cheltenham were invited to celebrate the Coronation of His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort over a weekend of special events from 6 to 8 May 2023.

Cheltenham Borough Council agreed a pot of funding, worth £30,000, to allocate to local good causes to help the town celebrate and commemorate this very special year and create a legacy for future generations.

Applications were invited for funding to support Coronation related projects across Cheltenham that helped to deliver our key Coronation themes:

  • Using the opportunity of the Coronation to bring people together, connecting people to foster new relationships and celebrating our diverse communities.
  • Using the opportunity of the Coronation to help improve the bio-diversity of Cheltenham green spaces and natural environment
  • Using the opportunity of the Coronation to help make Cheltenham a place where all our children and young people have the opportunity to thrive
