Rebecca Evans AM, Assembly Member for Gower, is welcoming the news that six Gower charities have each won a share of £27,675 in small grants from the Big Lottery Fund.
Rebecca Evans said: “I am very pleased that play schemes, community luncheon clubs, animal charities and others providing important services to the people of Gower have together been awarded more than £27,000 of Big Lottery small grants funding.”
Every year, the Big Lottery Fund distribute millions of pounds of the National Lottery's good cause money to community groups and charitable projects around the UK.
The Big Lottery Fund is responsible for distributing 40 per cent of all funds raised for good causes by the National Lottery. This totals over £650 million each year.
Rebecca Evans added: “These small grants can be a big help to local community groups and charitable projects in Gower. If there are other groups that would be interested in exploring grant funding, please contact me and I will be able to put you in touch with the Big Lottery Fund and other grant making bodies.”
