January Local Sponsorship Update

F1 Design Project

Year 12 pupils from Ysgol Plasmawr in Cardiff are taking part in a challenge to design a miniature F1 car, as part of national engineering competition. The sponsorship will help with model construction and the presentations the pupils have to make as part of the project.

Community Golf

Both the Gower and Pwllheli golf clubs were recognised for their outstanding efforts to engage with young golfers and with the wider community at the recently held Welsh Golf Awards. Both have received sponsorship to support their junior golf sections and to build on the progress made.

Keeping fit with boxing

The volunteers from Pontypool Boxing Club have been given a new year boost with sponsorship towards new equipment. This will help with the provision of classes for women and children; the class sizes having grown considerably over the last year.

Easter Tennis

Junior tennis players will be getting the opportunity to play in a special Easter competition at Cowbridge Tennis Club, which promises to be a lot of fun and will introduce team tennis.

Outdoor Gym

Cambrian Pengwern College in North Wales is a Welsh Learning Disability College, which supports over 50 students. They have been supported with the development of an outdoor gym.

Outside of sport

Help has been provided to volunteers who are setting up a new parent and toddler group at Abergavenny Community Centre along with the SA15 Stage School in Llanelli, whose next production of ‘Seussical’ is taking place at Y Ffwrnes Theatre. As part of our Christmas 2014 ‘Giving Back’ campaign, we received lots of requests for help and have supported an additional 10 community groups with £1000 of investment, including Artisans Collective and Barry Sea Scouts. We’ve also just signed up as a Big Issue Cymru Big List organisation.

If you have a community project that you’d like us to get involved with, then please let us know by completing our online form. We’d love to help if we can.
