On Friday 14th August, the First Minister of Wales, Mark Drakeford, visited St. Thomas’ Church in Trethomas which has been the headquarters of the BMMR Parish Trust CARE Project since March.
Statistics released today by the BMMR Parish Trust CARE Project for May indicate that the level of need in the community has seen an overall increase on the previous month.
On behalf of the Board of Trustees and the Project Senior Leadership Team, I am delighted to announce that the CARE Project has received a very kind and generous grant of £43,000 from the Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA) and the Welsh Government.
Over the last week, the CARE Project has made local and national news, as over 100 volunteers galvanise themselves to join the response effort in tackling the ongoing effects of the Coronavirus Outbreak.
It is now Day 5 of the CARE Project – the initiative set up by the Bedwas, Machen, Michaelston-y-Fedw & Rudry Parish Trust (i.e the Local Church) to help those in the greatest need during the Coronavirus Outbreak. The CARE Project has been providing services to anyone in our community who is self-isolating, alone, elderly/frail,.
