Funded Projects

So far, £6.5 million has been raised through The Health Lottery in Wales.

Thanks to this money, 169 local projects have been funded by People’s Health Trust, since 2011.

The Golden Oldies

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.

Lee Gardens Pool Committee

Were awarded awarded £20,293 for an existing two-year project to keep the children’s paddling pool in Penrhiwceiber, Mountain Ash open. The pool reopened in 2016 after a period of closure thanks to the efforts of the local community who formed a committee.

Funding for this project is aimed at keeping the pool open and running in the meantime. This will be achieved by volunteers meeting twice weekly for either planning or maintenance of the pool. Group have said, ‘Thanks to this funding we have been able to keep the children’s swimming pool in Penrhiwceiber, Mountain Ash open.”
