South Wales Children's Charities Invited To Bid For £16,000 Fund
CARDIFF, UK - Hilton Cardiff is giving away £16,000 to support young people across South Wales and is inviting charities to bid for a share of the donation.
The hotel is giving away the lump sum to registered charities, benefiting people under the age of 25 for projects they would otherwise be unable to afford.
The giveaway is facilitated by the DM Thomas Foundation for Young People, which aims to help local charities that offer services under the Foundation's core themes, which include: children and young people who live with disabilities, children who are homeless or children who are suffering from life-limiting illnesses.
Projects by charities in South Wales that have recently been supported by Hilton Cardiff include buying specialist ski equipment for Pembrey-based Ice Cool Kids to enable children with disabilities to take part in winter sports.
Other donations have aided in the purchase of a new respite caravan for the families helped by Kids Cancer Charity as well as money to help Your Pets Warehouse in Tonypandy to train young people who have had difficulty in securing permanent employment.
Marie Fagan, general manager, Hilton Cardiff, said: "Inviting charities to tell us which projects they really need help with will ensure that the £16,000 is distributed to vital services which would otherwise not receive the funding they need.
Whether they need just a small amount of the pot or a larger sum towards bigger projects, we invite all charities supporting children and young people from across South Wales to put their case forward."
Nominations should be sent in writing to The Executive Office, Hilton Cardiff, Kingsway, CF10 3HH. All applications must be received by no later than 5 p.m. on Friday, 31 July, 2015.
