Tumble Family Centre win £2,000 from SwansAid
Tumble Family Centre have become the most recent organisation to benefit from SwansAid after being award funding.
The Club’s grant-giving pot has granted the Centre £2,000 to fund the purchase and installation of artificial grass.
“It was fantastic to find out we had been successful,” said Lara Bagagiolo, the Centre Coordinator. “The centre depends on funding to ensure we can continue to provide a service.
“This grant will ensure we can improve the garden and use the space all through the year. It will make a huge difference to the centre and we cannot wait to get started with the improvements.
“Currently, the grass is very waterlogged and un-usable so the funding will allow us to replace some of the space with artificial grass, allowing it to be used all year round, increasing the amount of activity and fresh air our families can enjoy,” she continued.
Established in 2003 in the ex-coal mining village of Tumble, the Family Centre supports over 120 families and offers a safe environment where children and their parents or carers can play, learn, socialise and have fun.
The aim of the project is to develop, at a local level, the skills and nurturing capacity of parents and carers so that they well-being and life chances of their children are enhanced.
“Through providing our service we aim to stop the cycle of deprivation that many families find themselves in,” Lara explained. “We support children and their families by offering an inclusive service with a range of activities, outings and courses that ensure children get the best possible start in life.”
In addition to Tumble Family Centre, SwansAid funds have been granted to Port Talbot Town Cricket Club, Carmarthen Domestic Abuse Services and Mumbles Lifeguard Club.
