Funders and Projects

5 information boards funded by Environment Wales.
Installed by Duke of Edinburgh team run by Western Bay Youth Justice & Early Intervention Service.  Thanks to Tom, Clare and the lads and to I-Vol volunteers.

Fruit-tastic project with thanks to Keep Wales Tidy Small Grant Scheme, funded and supported by Tesco
David and Martyn constructed a fruit bed and fruit cage as part of their Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award with the help of their dad, Julian.  They stayed on site for five days and finished up with a well-earned cup of tea and cake at the village shop.  The bed will be used to grow soft fruit like Gooseberries, Raspberries and Blackcurrants to feed our hungry school children next year.

Percussion instruments funded by Sainsburys
Our percussion and musical activities were really improved this year by the addition of some amazing new instruments.

The FourWindsTrust, Austin Bailey Foundation, Warburtons, Archer Trust, Souter Charitable Trust and the Souter Trust all funded our Bursary
Our Bursary pot allows us to enable some schools with a large amount of free school meal children to come and stay with us for a very low percentage of the actual cost. This means that children who otherwise would not be able to come to the Centre are able to do so.

Marsh Christian Trust and the Monmouthshire Building Society helped fund purchase of new sports equipment
At the St Madoc Centre we encourage the children that stay with us to try new things, experience new environments and do things they haven't had the chance to before. Part of that is playing new sports, like La Crosse and Tchoukball. Without these funds we wouldn't have been able to buy the equipment to play these games.
