Monmouth AM Nick Ramsay was delighted to join staff and supporters of Chepstow and District Mencap at a lunch held last Thursday 4th October at Burnt Barn Social Club, Bulwark, Chepstow to await the announcement of the Big Lottery decision on their bid to restore the Board School in Chepstow as their new base.
The atmosphere was electric as the announcement was made, and Chepstow and District Mencap discovered that their bid had been successful.
They will now receive £500,000 of Big Lottery funding to enable their current project to refurbish the Board School as their new base to proceed.
Speaking after the event Nick said: “Chepstow Mencap is a fantastic organisation with a hardworking team of dedicated staff and volunteers.
“ I was delighted to be present when their successful bid for this funding was announced. The Big lottery has clearly seen the potential of the project for Mencap and the wider community. Well done Chepstow & District Mencap. “
