Community partnership welcomes applications for support
The South Hook LNG Community Fund, running in partnership with Pembrokeshire Association of Voluntary Services (PAVS), is set to broaden the support offered to local communities during 2016.
As it enters its second year, the Fund has increased its reach, giving the opportunity for community projects across Pembrokeshire to apply for funding. “This marks a natural progression for our partnership with PAVS, following the Fund’s first successful year of supporting the communities closest to the Terminal” commented South Hook LNG’s PR Manager, Mariam Dalziel.
“We are delighted to be broadening the reach of this Fund, where applications will be considered by a Panel of South Hook LNG representatives with the support of PAVS. Through this Fund and our volunteering programme, we are proud to continue our support of local communities, with particular emphasis on the areas of safety, education, environment and wellbeing.”
“PAVS is delighted to be building on the first year of this exciting partnership with South Hook LNG” said Lorna Livock, Development Officer at PAVS. “The reshaped South Hook LNG Community Fund now offers funding to communities across Pembrokeshire and we look forward to receiving applications from a range of projects that fit the Fund’s priorities”.
