Where does your fundraising money go?

All the money fundraised through our challenges is distributed across our partner community organisations to help with the following good causes across Wales.

Fuel Poverty

The current financial situation around Wales has left thousands of people unable to afford simple boiler repairs leaving many vulnerable elderly and young families in cold and damp homes with no hot water to wash or heat their homes. This is not acceptable, so we are supporting CAFgas CIC, which will offer free boiler repairs and, if needed, free boiler replacements to the residents around Wales.

Food Poverty

Food poverty has hit like never before, with 2.5 million
people accessing food banks between April 2020 and
March 2021, an increase of 600,000 people from the
previous year. Families are struggling to feed their
children and many people have to choose between eating
or heating their home. This is why we will support the
amazing charities Fareshare and NEWydd Catering and Cleaning across Wales.

Terminal illness support

The strain Covid-19 has put on our NHS has caused a backlog
in hospitals. Our nurses and doctors are doing all they can but inevitably there is an impact on patients being diagnosed and cared for, particularly those with terminal illnesses such as Cancer. We want to help support the charities that are providing support to patients being given life-altering diagnoses. This is why we will support Marie Curie.

The vulnerable

Vulnerable people in our society are disproportionately at risk of experiencing additional life challenges, such as mental illness or substance dependency, and require consistent and seamless support to aid their recovery. Adferiad Recovery provides a broad range of individualised services for some of the most vulnerable members of our community and their carers, with a particular focus on those suffering from mental health problems, substance misuse issues and co-occurring and complex needs. The charity is recovery-focused and promotes a positive step-by-step approach to achieving lasting change and better quality of life.

Environmental impact

The throwaway culture and lack of wild habitats for animals across the world have never been so serious as it is now! Plastic issues, especially with single-use plastics, is one of the biggest environmental issues the modern world faces. As landfills are getting increasingly full the overspill of plastic is seen everywhere in the natural world. We must act now! So, one of the challenges we have set for a Grand Week in Wales 2022 is to collect 1000 bags of litter. #GrandWelshPick We are looking for your help to collect bags of litter across Wales and do your part in cleaning up the global mess. Bags must be bin bag size or larger. We aim to run and connect litter picking groups around Wales to achieve our goal of picking and collecting 1000 bags of litter over the week from 22nd February. We are encouraging children, groups, businesses, families, and individuals to be sponsored for your litter/plastic clean-up to raise money for the charities involved with A Grand Week in Wales. The Grand Welsh Litter
Pick challenge will be headed by Green Paw Project and One Global Ocean.

With all the strain currently on the NHS, every penny really counts! This is why the completely volunteer-led charity Blood Bikes will be supported through A Grand Week In Wales. They literally support the lifeblood of the NHS by distributing essential blood and breast milk supplies around the UK, saving the NHS millions in the process, and saving lives on a daily basis. Led by their volunteers who, as the name suggests, use their motorbikes to get their precious cargo to the hospitals and outlets where it is needed most, in the quickest possible time.

Learning disabilities

People with learning disabilities often find themselves excluded and unable to interact with communities and this is felt tremendously by those who have these often misunderstood conditions. Fortunately there are the awesome organisations like Yellow and blue, which put these needs at the forefront of what they do, to create a socially inclusive place for their volunteers and beneficiaries to interact and have fun in all the different activities they offer. Building stronger and more socially inclusive communities, breaking down the barriers and educating people about these conditions and disabilities.
