Windfall for Conwy Monkeys
A CLIMBING club for disabled and autistic young people has won a £7,570 from BBC charity Children In Need.
Conwy Monkeys Climbing Club in Llandudno Junction are the beneficiaries.
The money is part of £58,613 given out in small grants across Wales but the charity is urging more organisations to come forward and claim a share.
Monkeys’ chair Judith Holliman said: “This new grant means we can continue our weekly climbing club, which will be great news for parents and children alike.
“This will be the second year we’ve benefited from a BBC Children in Need grant, so we’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who supported the charity and made this possible.”
The club meets at Llandudno Junction Leisure Centre each Thursday with the aim on improving physical health and making new friends.
BBC Children In Need has more than £8.4m invested in Welsh projects but have more to give.
Jemma Wray, Wales’ Head of BBC Children in Need said: “Our Small Grants are all about supporting projects where a relatively small amount of money can make a big difference.
“We want to give even more of these awards in our next round, and are keen to hear from projects that could benefit from grants of up to £10,000.”
