Colwyn Bay awarded funding to help make watersports more accessible

Clwyd West Assembly Member Darren Millar has welcomed news that Colwyn Bay is to receive funding from the National Lottery to help ensure watersports are accessible to those with limited mobility or visual impairment   

Colwyn Bay Watersports CIC have been awarded £10,000 after successfully applying to The National Lottery Community Fund.

The project will use the funding to increase participation in their sports by those with limited mobility or visual impairment by purchasing a 4x4 utility vehicle to safely transport individuals to the shore

Welcoming the news, Darren said:

“Porth Eirias is a place that is growing in popularity with watersports activities, including sailing, windsurfing, powerboating, kayaking, canoeing all available.

“I am therefore absolutely delighted that this funding has been made available to help ensure that such activities will be available to everyone in the future and that those with limited mobility and visual impairment will not have to miss out.

“I would like to congratulate Colwyn Bay Watersports CIC on their successful Lottery funding application and wish them the best of luck moving forward.”
