Sight Cymru awarded a grant from: The Millennium Stadium Charitable Trust

Sight Cymru has been awarded a grant of £2500 from the trust. The monies will be used to support the children’s club “Goggles” which runs in Torfaen.

The Millennium Stadium Charitable Trust was established through an agreement between the Millennium Stadium and the Millennium Commission and its income is generated through a levy on every ticket purchased by people attending public events at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

The Trust strives to enrich the quality of life in Welsh communities by investing in inspirational sporting, arts, environmental and community-based projects that will have a lasting impression on the people who will benefit.
