PCSO Mark Holland has awarded PACT funding to Gwynedd Council’s intergenerational programme.
The money will go towards a Christmas project in Penygroes that will see up to 200 local children using their artistic skills to make Christmas gifts such as framed pictures that will be given to residents of Plas Gwilym Care Home.
This project aims to bridge the gap between the generations and build a relationship between the young and elderly in the community. It is hoped that this project will be the start of other intergenerational projects, helping to boost community spirit and pride in the area.
Judith Humphreys from Gwynedd Council said: “Thank you very much to North Wales Police for their support towards a project which brings together Gwynedd Council’s Inter Generational programme, Gwynedd Youth Services , the young people of Ysgol Dyffryn Nantlle and the residents of Plas Gwilym care home.
“The grant will allow the young people to create Christmas gifts for residents at the Plas Gwilym care home. This project will bring generations together and enhance community cohesion.
“Thank you very much to everyone involved.”
