We’re calling for your vote to secure £50,000 of National Lottery funding as part of this year’s People’s Projects.

Since 2005, the partnership between The National Lottery Community Fund, The National Lottery and ITV has given the public a say in how funding should be put to good use in their local area.

On (date that Project broadcasts on ITV), we’ll be showcasing our project, Healthy Hospital Gardens, on ITV News at 6pm telling local viewers exactly why we deserve to win.

If successful, we’ll use the grant to transform unloved areas of three hospitals into beautiful gardens. The aim is to create quiet havens that will benefit the health and wellbeing of patients, visitors and hard-working NHS staff at Gorseinon Hospital, Morriston Hospital and Ysbyty Cwm Rhondda.  

So, please support our bid by visiting the People’s Projects website to vote. Voting opens at 9am on Monday 1 April at www.thepeoplesprojects.org.uk

Lesley Jones, Keep Wales Tidy Chief Executive said:

This is an exciting opportunity to make a positive difference to the lives of hospital patients, their families and friends, and NHS staff. Our gardens will enable people to get away from the hustle and bustle of the wards; take in some fresh air and enjoy beautiful natural environment. We hope that everyone will get behind us and vote for our Healthy Hospital Gardens.

Joe Ferns, UK Funding Director at The National Lottery Community Fund, said:

As the largest funder of community activity in the UK, we are proud to support groups that are led by the vision, determination and drive of local people to strengthen communities. In previous years we have seen a wide range of successful projects, from a café supporting young carers to animal-assisted therapy for people living with dementia and the development of a bee-friendly orchard. The People’s Projects is a chance for you to have your say on how National Lottery funding can help your community to thrive.

The People’s Projects has awarded around £42 million to 960 good causes across the UK since it started in 2005. 

Voting closes at noon on Monday 15 April 2019. You can vote once per region and will need a telephone number or email address to vote. To support the Healthy Hospital Gardens and for Ts & Cs please visit www.thepeoplesprojects.org.uk
