Funding thanks (again!) to the People's Postcode Lottery!

Our thanks go once again to the players of the Postcode Lottery who raise funds for a large number of small charities (seel below for details of their previous generous grant to us). One such charity is the Postcode Local Trust who recently awarded Ruperra Conservation Trust a grant of £5,400 to help with the Coed y Goitre regeneration project.

This money will be spent on the purchase, and planting, of saplings, on the eradication of non-invasive species and development of wildlife habitats in order to improve the biodiversity across this fabulous site.

 

Other funding thanks

- In late 2018, the Trust was lucky enough to have a grant application approved by the Landfill Disposal Tax Community Scheme, which is run by the Wales Council for Voluntary Action. The grant is for £49,700, and will be spent over three years to complete three biodiversity projects:

           We’re very grateful to the WCVA for their support and we’ll keep you updated on progress.

- We'd also like to thank the players of the People's Postcode Lottery, who made it possible for us to lay 400 metres of native hedge for wildlife. In December 2016, our hedge laying team were funded by a fantastic grant of £9268, and the woodland birds, bats, dormice and insects will all benefit from the work.

     More information on this can be found on the People's Postcode Lottery website, www.postcodelottery.co.uk
