COMMUNITIES across the city have received thousands in funding to celebrate His Majesty The King’s Coronation.

The funding, which ranges from grants of £300 to £10,000, is supporting activities across the weekend of May 6 to 8 with an emphasis on events and activities that bring people together.

The Barmulloch Community Development Company Ltd (BCDC) in Glasgow is just one of 121 Scottish groups receiving a share of the £480,000 National Lottery funding pot.

Martin McElroy, chief executive of BCDC, said: "On the day of the Coronation there will be a funfair, afternoon tea, a royal pageant, live performances and much more.

"We want families to enjoy the event and create memories together without worrying about how much it would cost.

"We are also planning on organising the world’s first ever autistic friendly Coronation Party.

"Sometimes large public events can cause anxiety to families and children with autism, so our volunteers and local parents have created a dedicated space to make sure children with autism can participate in a safe and supported environment.

"All of our plans for the big day focus on bringing the whole community together, having fun, and celebrating a historic event.

"Forget about the formalities at Westminster Abbey, Barmulloch is where the real excitement is happening."
