One of the 57 groups in Wales celebrating a grant from The National Lottery Community Fund this month is the committee for Treowen Community Hall, who developed a plan to help their community get healthier by providing a new, multi-use games area to use.
The National Lottery Community Fund is investing more than £2 million of National Lottery funding on a project to support older people to remain in or return to work in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
Three local community groups in Wales have won a public vote to secure up to £50,000 of National Lottery funding as part of this year’s The People’s Projects. The money was awarded after Starlings Aberystwyth, Dal Dy Dir in Powys, and Keep Wales Tidy in Swansea and Rhondda Cynon Taf, won the public.
Many people daydream about winning the National Lottery but imagine how you would feel receiving a grant from the National Lottery Community Fund for your community? This month, grants totalling nearly £3 million have been awarded in Wales.
