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.
