Brecon Rotary Club will be running their Community Chest Scheme again this autumn. The Scheme allows local clubs and organisations an opportunity to bid for grants of up to £500 to support projects which enhance community life in and around the Brecon area. Projects can be directed at any age group or section of the community.
Club President, Neil Sandiford, said “the Community Chest Fund is open to not for profit organisations in the Brecon area, and applications which meet our criteria, as outlined in the guidance, will be considered. The main objective of the Fund is to make a difference to people's lives, and organisations who can demonstrate how a grant would make a difference will stand in good stead”.
The following are some organisations / projects are amongst those that benefited from funding since the Spring 2017, Talgarth Luncheon Club, Brecknock Little Theatre, Brecon Volunteer Bureau, South Powys Youth Music, Brecon Prom Fest, take pART, Brecon Neuro Café (Stroke Association), Brecon Folk and More Club, 1st Brecon Scouts Brecon, Brecon and District Swimming Club, BCA Independent Advocacy Services, Red Kites Cluster Girls, The Friends of Llyswen School, Hay and District Dial a Ride, JKS Wales - Brecon Senshi Karate Dojo, Llangors Youth and Community Centre and Brecon Integrated Sports Association.
