Ceredigion’s Welsh Liberal Democrat MP Mark Williams has welcomed the news that three projects in Ceredigion are receiving grants from this year’s Lloyds Bank Community Fund awards. The projects set to benefit are the Lush & Lleol Kitchen Garden Project near Lampeter, Clwb Cledlyn Club based in Drefach, and Help us to survive (HUTS) based in Adpar.
Around 1,400 good causes in 350 communities across the UK have been awarded the Lloyds Bank Community Fund, including three local projects in Ceredigion which have a positive impact at the heart of their communities, and who are receiving grants of between £500 and £3,000.
Commenting Mark Williams said;
“I am very pleased these three such worthy causes in Ceredigion have been recognised. I understand voting took place across September and October, with people being able to vote in branch, online, by text message, and on Twitter for their favourite projects, and a huge 1.5 million votes were cast. I know these projects do very valuable work, and will put the grants to good use in their local areas.”
Graham Lindsay, Director, Responsible Business and Community Affairs, Lloyds Banking Group said
“It has been fantastic to see so many members of the public nominating and voting for good causes in the 2014 Lloyds Bank Community Fund. Looking at all the wonderful causes that the Community Fund awards will go towards is truly heartening to see. Helping our communities thrive in this way is crucial to us delivering our ambition to help Britain prosper.”
