Triple A cel­e­brates a ‘Lotto’ fund­ing

Bray People - - NEWS -

THE Triple A Al­liance will re­ceive fund­ing from the Na­tional Lot­tery, along with Ark­low Men­tal Health As­so­ci­a­tion.

The Wick­low Triple A Al­liance will use this grant to­wards fund­ing three dif­fer­ent pro­grammes for chil­dren with Autism, Asperger Syn­drome and ADHD.

The Ark­low Men­tal Health As­so­ci­a­tion has ear­marked this fund­ing to as­sist in pre­sent­ing a drama on sui­cide and sui­cide preven­tion.

Both grants were rec­om­mended after an in­de­pen­dent ap­praisal by of­fi­cials in the Depart­ment of Health.

Min­is­ter Si­mon Har­ris said that two very de­serv­ing Wick­low or­gan­i­sa­tions were suc­cess­ful in their ap­pli­ca­tions for the fund­ing.

‘ The grants will go a long way in con­tribut­ing to the great work which they carry out. I know from per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ence of the as­sis­tance which the Triple A Al­liance has given to fam­i­lies of chil­dren and adults with Autism, Asperger Syn­drome and ADHD in Grey­stones and the wider com­mu­nity.’
