Earlier this year, Llandrindod Wells FC received National Lottery funding so that its players could safely return to football. The club celebrated a National Lottery grant of more than £600 from the Sport Wales Be Active Wales Fund.
Mike Jones is the general groundsman and coach to the under 9s. He says:
“We have lost our revenue opportunities so I’d like to thank National Lottery players. Without their support, clubs just wouldn’t be able to survive. We have spent the grant on thermometers, PPE, hand sanitiser and signage to make sure that our players can come back to play football safely.
“To see the kids being able to come back and train has put a big smile on their faces. It’s really important for their mental health.”
Throughout the Covid pandemic National Lottery contributions are helping to protect and prepare Welsh sport for a safe return to activity.
