National Lottery funding benefits North Wales

Clwyd West AM Darren Millar has welcomed news that two groups in his constituency have each received a slice of the latest funding from the National Lottery.

After successfully applying to the Big Lottery Fund, Cruse Bereavement Care Ltd North Wales Area and Tourette Syndrome (UK) Association have together received £16,860  of National Lottery funding in November.

Cruse Bereavement will use their £9,360 grant to recruit and train volunteers to provide support and advice to bereaved people, while Tourette Syndrome (UK) Association will use their £7,500 grant to hold a weekend full of activities and events for children and families who live with Tourette Syndrome. The money will fund activities, accommodation, staff, travel and visiting experts.

Welcoming the news, Darren said:

“It is always great to hear of National Lottery funding benefitting my constituents. Both Cruse Bereavement and Tourette Syndrome Association carrying out invaluable work in our communities and this money will enable them to continue and expand on this work.

“I  would like to congratulate them both on their successful applications and wish them the best of luck moving forward.”
