Lee Gardens Pool Committee, Penrhiwceiber

Lee Gardens Pool Committee are celebrating receiving a grant of £20,293 from People’s Health Trust, using money raised by The Health Lottery in Wales.


This existing two-year project aims 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 the Let’s Get Together! Project is aimed at keeping the pool open and general running of the pool. Volunteers will meet twice a week for planning and maintenance.


Chris Lunn, The Health Lottery in Wales spokesperson, said: “The funds raised through The Health Lottery in Wales are changing and improving lives. It was clear that supporting Lee Gardens Pool Committee would have a great benefit to the local community.”


To date, over £100 million has been raised by The Health Lottery for good causes across Great Britain, of which £5.4 million has been raised for Wales.


Health Lottery Wales is benefitting from Health Lottery tickets sold for all draws being held between 1 May and 31 May 2019. You can purchase Health Lottery tickets in advance for these draws online at www.healthlottery.co.uk or from over 32,000 retailers nationwide including The Post Office, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, ASDA, Morrisons and WH Smith.
