The team behind the Spalding Festival in 2019

Grant just the ticket for festival

The Spalding Festival and a network of food businesses are the latest to get new government grants.

UK Shared Prosperity And Rural Prosperity Grassroots funds are being shared with both causes in addition to those handed out this week.
The Spalding Festival returns from Friday May 24 and Sunday May 28 at the Castle Sports Field.
Its run by the Spalding Round Table charity in collaboration with Spalding Ladies Circle.
Funding will go towards expanding the festival to include a community area and dance area – as well as enhancing the established main arena and experience for all.
Chairman of Spalding and District Round Table Matt Clark said: “With its steady growth since 2016, our festival has become one of the largest charity fundraisers in Lincolnshire.
From the outset, as the new chairman, I pledged to elevate the festival, and want not only to support more local causes for the underprivileged but also to celebrate our community’s rich diversity by engaging people from various social backgrounds and cultural beliefs.
“Central to the growth has been the inclusion of chart-topping bands alongside our talented local musicians, ranging from bands to DJs. While striving for this larger concept, there have been many challenges, particularly in the increased costs with the transition to a fully outdoor event this year.
“The support from our sponsors has been amazing, but the success of our funding application is truly invaluable.
“These resources ensure that the grand vision becomes a reality, allowing us to deliver an event that leaves lasting memories and makes significant charitable contributions.
“We are deeply grateful for the support, and we’re excited to create an unforgettable experience for all who attend.”
A package of funding has also been awarded to the UK Fresh Produce Network which is a network to link UK fresh produce companies with the local and national supply chain supported by the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce.
This funding is targeted at supporting the UKFPN to expand its reach to a greater number of businesses while encouraging businesses within South Holland to engage with new markets, both domestic and international.
South Holland District Council has not said how much money has been given to each organisation that’s received grants.
