Could your community sport project benefit from up to £1,500 in funding?

Each year Sport Wales work in partnership with the 22 Local Authorities in Wales to provide funding to help community sport projects increase their participation levels and improve their standards through the Community Chest grant scheme.

Who can apply for a Community Chest grant? Any group that holds an account (be it a Bank, Building Society or Credit Union account), in their organisation's name. This could include sports clubs or associations, youth clubs or community groups.

If you’re based in Blaenau Gwent and would like to apply for a Community Chest Grant, but need some help with the application process, come along to our FREE Funding Workshop on Tuesday 19th June from 6.30pm – 8pm at Ebbw Vale Sports Centre.

Our Inspire Sports Development staff will also be on hand throughout the workshop to offer advice on how you can develop your club or organization.

To book a free workshop space please contact Chris Garrett on 01495 353394 or 07773 312662 or email him at chris.garrett@aneurinleisure.org.uk

The Ebbw Vale Learning Action Centre Wednesday night Photography Class has recently enjoyed some excellent outdoor practical sessions to Dunraven Bay and Pontneddfechan waterfalls.

The class which has been running at the centre for ten years under the stewardship of Phillip Slaughter continues to thrive and the examination results stay amongst the highest in the country, but it’s much more than about the grades.

The class caters for the beginner to the experienced enthusiast, there is no competition, everyone works with everyone else to make the class the success it is and the reason why so many learners return year on year.

Mindfulness and wellbeing are two keywords that many are familiar with today and I speak from my personal experience of how this class helped me through a difficult period of my life when I was living on haemodialysis, the Wednesday night class gave me a focus and walking into the lesson you knew you were amongst friends and could catch up on the week gone by.

It has been a couple of years since I completed my last qualification with Phillip, but we have continued to keep in touch and he has always been on hand to offer advice when needed.

Since becoming a Trustee of Aneurin Leisure following my election to Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council, I have been eager to join the class on an outdoor session, the unprecedented inclement weather put it on hold, but eventually when it happened, it was well worth the wait, visiting such picturesque locations as Dunraven Bay and the waterfalls at Pontneddfechan has certainly whetted my appetite and I look forward to enrolling to the class for 2018/19 in September.

HOV Presentation

 

On Monday 14th May Anthony Hughes, Managing Director of Aneurin Leisure and Meirion Morgan, Chair of our Board of Trustees, visited the Hospice of the Valleys to deliver a cheque for £1,133.86 following recent fundraising activities undertaken by the Trust and its visitors.

The cheque was presented to Grant Usmar, CEO of the Hospice of the Valleys and Amanda Chard, Events Fundraising Manager at the Hospice of the Valleys Day Centre facility in Ebbw Vale.

The fundraising activities took place at our recent event ‘An Evening with Rugby’s Finest’ at Bedwellty House & Park in Tredegar, which featured Welsh rugby stars Shane Williams and Ryan Jones and was hosted by former Ospreys Coach and TV and radio expert Sean Holley.

Throughout the evening guests were invited to participate in a raffle and silent auction for a variety of prizes, which were kindly donated by Penderyn Distillery, Sean Holley, The Events Room, Kirsty Carr Photography, Hospice of the Valleys and Aneurin Leisure. All the proceeds from the silent auction and raffle were then donated to the Hospice of the Valleys.

Anthony Hughes, Managing Director of Aneurin Leisure said; “It was a pleasure to present a cheque for £1,133.86 to the Hospice of the Valleys on behalf of Aneurin Leisure, following our fundraising activities at Bedwellty House & Park. We at Aneurin Leisure greatly value the positive partnership we have with the Hospice of the Valleys and are eager to continue to raise money to help with the invaluable work they do in the local community.

I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone involved in making this event such a success, including Penderyn Distillery, Kirsty Carr Photography, Sean Holley and The Events Room for their kind donation of prizes which made our fundraising possible. I would also like to offer a special thank you to all the local people who attended and supported our event at Bedwellty House, without whom none of this would have been possible.”

Grant Usmar, CEO Hospice of the Valleys added; “It is only through local support that Hospice of the Valleys is able to help support over 600 families each year who are living with a life limiting illness. We are very grateful for the donation given by Aneurin Leisure.

The event, 'An Evening with Rugby's Finest' at Bedwellty House was a real win-win as not only did the people attending have a great evening, but they also raised an amazing amount to support our work. We look forward to continuing our work with Aneurin Leisure throughout the year.”
