We have been thrilled to see new Project Fund applications coming through from organisations who are responding creatively to immediate community needs and supporting their communities in these most difficult times and the latest two projects supported are:

  • Cwmparc Community Association to deliver afternoon teas, care packages for the elderly and craft play packs for local children.
  • Hot Jam who will be writing and producing new pieces of music and songs, with accompanying videos. They will be working with young people (aged 7 – 18) in isolation due to the Coronavirus pandemic. They plan to run the project over a 16-week period setting up online song writing sessions.
