Aviva Community Fund success for Swansea and Welshpool branches
Congratulations to our Swansea team – whose charity nomination secured funding through the Aviva Community Fund. The team nominated ‘Cwmgors Amateur Boxing Club’, who through the fund were awarded £1,000 to support them.
Nia Roberts and Carol Gray from our Welshpool Branch, also had great success with the Aviva Community fund.
After putting their funding request application forward, Nia and Carol were 'delighted and overjoyed' when they became winners of the £10,000 that will go towards maintaining a local tennis club. They received their award at The Monastery in Manchester, by Rugby World Cup Winner and Community Fund Ambassador, Will Greenwood MBE.
"We applied for 10k in The Environment Category – projects that aim to improve their natural surroundings and make a positive change to the local area. There were 18 finalists in our category with six receiving 10k (18 others received upto £5k and three received £25k). We are ecstatic and shocked to be selected as one of the lucky winners."
An amazing achievement...well done Nia and Carol!
