Sam Rowlands MS for North Wales is delighted two local projects have received grants from a community fund.
The Hafren Dyfrdwy Community Fund, which was set up by Severn Trent Water, is supporting four projects in Wales with two in the North.
Mr Rowlands said:
“I am delighted to see almost £20,000 has been allocated to two schemes in my region with the Wrexham Warehouse Project receiving a grant for new community facilities and Agri-cation CIC to help the community ‘Grow Together’.
“Both are very worthwhile and excellent schemes and it is great to see North Wales receiving two of the very first grants awarded.
“The Hafren Dyfrdwy Community Fund was launched last September and applications for the next round of funding will be in March 2022 and I would encourage any non-profit organisations running community projects in North Wales to apply.”
The Wrexham Warehouse Project is a charity based in Wrexham town centre, which offers a variety of training courses and support for young people alongside running projects for the homeless, people with disabilities and many other community groups.
With a grant of £10,000 they will be able to install kitchen facilities for those they support day to day as well as museum visitors and other members of the community.
Agri-cation CIC give children from disadvantaged backgrounds and disabled children the opportunity to visit their family farm and experience outdoor learning, including wildlife and habitat, how to tackle climate change and growing your own food.
A grant of £9,408 for their Grow Together project will help many new and different groups of the community regain confidence and improve their mental health, social skills and wellbeing.
