So far, £6.5 million has been raised through The Health Lottery in Wales.
Thanks to this money, 164 local projects have been funded by People’s Health Trust, since 2011.
Were awarded £10,056 to support a new 18-month project which aims to enhance the activities of a local weekly group for over 55s by delivering additional outings and a Christmas lunch, giving people the opportunity for new experiences and greater interaction.
Members share ideas through weekly chats and face to face discussions that shape the development of the group. Currently the group put on entertainment such as bingo and music at their weekly meet ups, and this project will see them expand and deliver excursions to cultural and historical points of interest too.
Were awarded £11,817 to deliver weekly dance sessions for adults with disabilities in the Vale of Glamorgan where there is no other provision for such activity.
The weekly dance sessions will enable participants to make new friends, be active and develop their confidence and skills. Members will learn from professional dance tutors as well as from each other as they will be an integral part of the creative process each week. Dancers will also perform their work at local community events.
