Over the last three years, Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water have invested £23 million to upgrade the clean water pipes in the Rhondda Fach.
As a thank you to the local community for bearing with them during the work, the not-for-profit company offered local community groups the opportunity to receive £250 to help support activities that benefit the whole community.
Four groups were selected at random to receive £250 each for their projects. One successful group is the Tylorstown mini-Juniors, who were set up to help young people in the Rhondda Fach Valley focus on sports and become part of a local team.
Over the last three years, the not-for-profit company has donated more than £20,000 to over 60 community groups across the Rhondda Fach. This money has helped support a range of activities, such as sports, music and arts equipment, office supplies, room hire, and providing mental health and wellbeing resources. Some of the funding has also been provided to nurseries, adult education classes and toddler groups to promote community engagement.
