North Wales Homes For Veterans Receives Funding From RWE Innogy Rhyl Flats Offshore Wind Farm Community Fund
We are delighted to announce that our Homes For Veterans in Colwyn Bay will receive £7,585 from the RWE Innogy Rhyl Flats Offshore Wind Farm Community Fund. The funding will pay for new mountain bikes, hiking and wet weather gear, and outdoor activities, helping veterans improve their health and mental well-being by becoming more physically active.
Rachel McCartney from Alabaré Christian Care and Support, which runs the Wales Homes for Veterans project, said:
“This will be a real boost to our residents. Being able to get out and about, becoming independent, engaging in physical activity and being active in the community can make all the difference between thriving and simply surviving”.
Katy Woodington, RWE Innogy UK’s Senior Community Investment Officer, said:
“Rhyl Flats Community Fund has invested over £600,000 in North Wales since becoming operational in 2009. We are really proud to be supporting the communities hosting our renewable energy projects and helping to make a positive long term difference to the local area.”
