Challenge Wales – the Penarth-based organisation that provides sail training opportunities to young people across Wales is to receive a £10,000 grant from the National Lottery.
The charity has been congratulated by Penarth Conservative AM Andrew R T Davies (South Wales Central) .
Describing the award as a “huge boost” – Mr Davies said it would enable Challenge Wales to build on their excellent work and allow even more young people to benefit from the “invaluable experiences” they offer. He said “Challenge Wales have done a lot of great work helping young people in their development – and have offered experiences that will stay with them for life.”
The organisation has recently acquired a second vessel – and the funds will got towards the costs of replacing safety equipment – including 16 sets of waterproof jackets and trousers and batteries.
