Pennant Walters award £100,000 from the community fund to 18 organisations across the Ogwr Valley for 2021.
The community benefit pool of £100,000 per year is allocated within the area and will support activities that deliver a range of benefits for the local community. This year money will go to support 18 organisations including sports clubs, community centres, schools and charities.
The money is linked to the construction of the standalone Pant y Wal Wind Extension Farm, adjacent to Ogwr Valley. The windfarm became fully operational in December 2017 and the fund, established by Pennant Walters, is managed by Ogmore Vale Community Council.
The proposals this year all build on making a long-term positive impact in the community.
Pennant Walters Managing Director, Dale Hart, said: “Our wind energy project community fund exists to make a difference to the local communities in which we work. We are proud to be a member of the local community and have an important role to play in supporting the efforts of organisations seeking to make a difference to people who live and play locally.
During the past year we’ve seen just how important community is, and we are delighted that this money will go to make a positive difference to organisations across the area.”
Future applications for funding can be made in any month up to November of the relevant year, via Ogmore Vale Community Council (OVCC). Decisions on awards will be made by Pennant Walters each year based on the recommendations of OVCC.
