My name is Neal Francis and I am one of the Trustees of Resolven Library. I would like to share with you some good news we have received this week.
We have been extremely lucky in being awarded 2 grants. The 1st is a grant of £263 from Hanfod Cymru which will enable us to purchase a laminator for the community to use. Hanfod Cymru is a new national charitable fund exclusively for Wales, distributing the money raised for good causes by Loteri Cymru.
The second grant is from Big Lottery Fund Wales Awards for All. Every year, the Big Lottery Fund distributes millions of pounds of the National Lottery’s good cause money to community groups and charitable projects around the UK. They have given us £2463 which will enable us to purchase 3 new pc’s printer for use by the community and will also let us purchase a coffee machine so that people can come in and have a chat over a tea or coffee.
We can not thank both of the organisations enough for their support and I would also like to thank all those who give up their time in volunteering in the library without them we wouldn’t be able to operate. Also if anyone can give up 2 hours a week of their time we a desperately looking for new volunteers for us to be able to continue running the library for use by all in the community.
