Seomra Bray re­ceives fund­ing

Bray People - - NEWS -

SEOMRA Youth Cen­tre in Bray is among three Wick­low groups to be al­lo­cated fund­ing un­der the Cap­i­tal Grants for Youth Projects.

A to­tal of €19,000 was al­lo­cated to projects in county Wick­low, in­clud­ing Wick­low Trav­ellers Group, Seomra Bray and Bal­ly­waltrim Com­mu­nity Cen­tre and the money al­lo­cated will al­low them to im­prove their fa­cil­i­ties and the equip­ment avail­able for their work with young peo­ple in the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

The an­nounce­ment was wel­comed by Fine Gael TD An­drew Doyle, who praised the groups for their hard work.

‘Fundrais­ing and vol­un­tary ded­i­ca­tion keeps a lot of th­ese groups go­ing so this much-needed fund­ing will pro­vide as­sis­tance to th­ese or­gan­i­sa­tions who do such vi­tal work in some of the more dis­ad­van­taged com­mu­ni­ties in our so­ci­ety,’ he said.

The Cap­i­tal fund­ing scheme for small to medium cap­i­tal grants is to re­main open to ap­pli­ca­tions from the Depart­ment of Chil­dren and Youth Af­fairs un­til early 2015 for cap­i­tal projects re­lated to health and safety im­prove­ments to premises.
