Our Colchester BID Launches Create Fund 2022

Our Colchester Business Improvement District (BID) has launched the application process for the March 2022 Create Fund initiative. The BID is welcoming applications from organisations looking for help in funding for projects and initiatives that will increase footfall and interest within the town centre.

Previous projects that have had funding from the Create Fund include the Anti-Loo Roll Festival, Colchester Pride, Interactive storytelling performances from Funnelwick Limb, Colchester Fringe, Colchester Eco Festival and many more.

The BID encourages community groups, associations and organisations looking to put on events and initiatives in the town that are in need of additional funding to apply through this initiative.

BID Manager Sam Good says "It's great to launch the Create Fund again this year. We've seen some brilliant successes from this funding initiative before, including large scale festivals and community events which bring positive attention to Colchester Town Centre.

This is the perfect opportunity for organisations looking to boost their funding for a project they are looking to hold in Colchester town centre."

The deadline for this fund is Thursday 31st March 2022.
