Carols Grants available

It’s only July but the Glenorchy City Council is already looking towards the city’s Christmas celebrations, and is once again offering Christmas Carols Grants to the community.

First introduced last year, the Christmas Carols Grants help community members celebrate the festive season by giving them a number of varied events across Glenorchy to attend.

Businesses, community groups and not-for-profit organisations can apply for as much as $10,000 to help deliver their carols event. Applications will open soon, with successful applicants to be announced by the end of September.

“In 2022, Council received a large number of funding requests for diverse and creative events, and I have no doubt we will receive a similarly high calibre of applications this year,” Glenorchy Mayor Bec Thomas said.

“It was fantastic to support and attend a number of community events last year, from the bigger Carols in the Vale event to the smaller church, primary school and multicultural events.

“It was hugely encouraging to see the Christmas spirit pull the community together, with Council supporting six unique events across our municipality.

“For me, Christmas is all about togetherness and bringing joy to the people around you.
I am so proud Council is once again supporting community members to create these fantastic opportunities for people to gather and be jolly this Christmas.”

Check the council’s website for more information and updates on how to apply for a grant, or phone the Events Officer on 6216 800.
