Wales goes green thanks to £300,000 National Lottery boost

Today The National Lottery Community Fund announced nearly £300,000 has been awarded to communities in Wales to tackle climate change, thanks to National Lottery players.

29 groups across Wales have been awarded grants totalling £295,952 from The National Lottery Community Fund to make small improvements in their communities to tackle the climate emergency.

The grants are part of a pilot in Wales to support existing National Lottery projects to take action in their communities to tackle the climate emergency. The work that will be undertaken by communities through the pilot will influence how The Fund works more broadly across the UK in the future.

Last year The National Lottery Community Fund announced that it is committing £100 million over 10 years to support communities across the UK to tackle climate change.

The grants have been made possible thanks to National Lottery players’ ticket purchases. For a full list of grants awarded, please click here.
