New Funding from Be Active Wales

Pentyrch RFC awarded “Be Active Wales” Funding

We pleased to announce that we have received a share of funding aimed at supporting grassroots sports clubs through the Covid-19 crisis and into the future.

We were awarded £4,868 by Sport Wales’ Be Active Wales Fund to help protect us from some of the financial effects of the COVID-19 crisis on the Club.

Thanks to the Welsh Government and repurposed money from the National Lottery, the Be Active Wales Fund enables clubs to apply for grants Protect or Prepare during the pandemic and Progress into the future.

Some clubs need the funding to help them stay afloat, while other clubs are using the money to make any adaptations required to ensure their activities are safe once they are given the green light by Welsh Government for their sport to restart.  Others are ready to move forward and progress with a project which will enable more people to enjoy sport like our members do.


Gary Samuel, Club Chairman, said:

“This funding will make a massive difference for our club. Like so many other clubs, the Covid-19 crisis has hit us hard, so this funding is very welcome. It has helped us to survive so that whenever we are given the opportunity to play again, we will be ready. We would like to thank Sport Wales, Welsh Government and the National Lottery.”
