Age Connects North Wales Central has received £10,000 to teach new skills to elderly people in Conwy and Denbighshire.
The donation was provided by the Santander Foundation which offers grants to UK registered charities for projects that help disadvantaged people in local communities.
Age Connects provides services to some of the most isolated, poor and vulnerable older people in the local area. The grant will help to fund the ‘Perennials’ Project which supports people with dementia and life limiting illnesses how to grow their own food whilst making new friends and encouraging them to take an active part in their local communities.
Isa Lamb, Perennials Co-ordinator at Age Connects North Wales Central said:"This is such an exciting project which will really bring the community together and make sure that older people with substantial care needs are supported by local people. We are very grateful to the Santander Foundation."
Lyn Rider, Branch Manager at Santander’s Colwyn Bay branch said:"The Santander Foundation makes hundreds of donations every year to good causes throughout the UK. Our branch is committed to playing a key part in the community and we are delighted to be supporting Age Connects North Wales Central, and hope the donation makes a real difference to local people."
