Small Sparks is WBBL’s way of getting some lottery funding directly into the hands of the local community to make Whitley Bay a better place.  If you have an idea to bring people together but just need some support and cash to do that then, our Small Sparks Scheme is just what you need. You can apply for a £200 grant to make something happen!

Some recent Small Sparks...

Artist Theresa Poulton used her £250 to run a life drawing art class and music event. She now holds monthly classes at the WBBL shop.​

Mick Young bought guitars and led beginners lessons for local people.​

Cath Walshaw used her cash to start up her Scottish Fortnight Memories project.

We are happy to help you not only with the cash but to support your idea which may grow into something bigger.
