Huw Irranca-Davies AM and Ogmore MP Chris Elmore welcomed over fifty community groups to their Funding Advice Day on Friday 10th February.

The duo welcomed fourteen funding providers from the Big Lottery Fund, BAVO, Prince’s Trust to Bridgend County Borough Council at Pencoed Rugby Club to talk to groups about what funding may be available to them.

Huw said: “It’s great that we are able to put these events on for groups and give them tailored advice to their requirements”.

Mr Elmore said: “I’m thrilled that the event has had such a big uptake. There are some really positive noises coming from these conversations and I hope the groups have found the advice useful.”

The event attracted over 100 people from various groups from across the constituency who were able to speak to funders on their specific projects.  The success of the event has had calls on social media from groups for it to be an annual occurrence.
