The Hanfod Cymru Board was saddened to hear today (Tuesday 27 March 2018) that Loteri Cymru has ceased operating and that there will be no further draws.
As an independent charity, established to distribute grants to charities across Wales, Hanfod Cymru is very grateful to Loteri Cymru, and to all the players who bought tickets, for their support during the past eleven months.
It is a matter of real pride to Hanfod Cymru that we have been able to give grants to over 50 charities across the whole of Wales, and made a real difference to local communities across our nation.
The outcome of the Hanfod Cymru third small grants round will be announced shortly, and the distribution of those grants will bring the total grants distributed by Hanfod Cymru since last July, thanks to Loteri Cymru and its players, to £120,000.
The Hanfod Cymru Board is considering the charity’s future at this time, in view of this week’s disappointing news.
