Applications Invited For The Welsh Church Acts Fund

This article is old - Published: Sunday, Jun 5th, 2016

Last September the Council awarded grants of approximately £14,000.00 from The Welsh Church Acts Fund. These grants were awarded to 31 organisations seeking assistance for the cost of equipment or specific projects such as renovation work. The fund is used to provide financial assistance for charitable purposes to organisations operating within the Wrexham County Borough area, with aims fitting the scheme’s criteria. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Applications for this year’s awards will be considered in September 2016 and organisations wishing to have an application considered are requested to submit the completed application form by 31 July 2016. Applicants who have received a grant in the previous two years are asked to note that a subsequent application is unlikely to succeed. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Priority for distribution will be given to Organisations supporting Social and Recreational Facilities, Places of Worship and Burial Grounds and Blind and Elderly Persons. The maximum amount of award available will be £500. Application forms and a list of grant criteria can be obtained from the Council’s internet site at, by post from the Head of Finance, Wrexham County Borough Council, Lambpit Street Wrexham LL11 1AR or by telephone from Mr K Griffiths (01978) 292724. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
