Local Senedd Member for Monmouth, Nick Ramsay, was delighted to receive news that King Henry VIII Comprehensive School in Abergavenny was awarded a £1000 grant from the National Lottery Community Fund in June.
The grant will enable the school to develop a programme to train Year 9-11 pupils to become Mental Health, Well-being and Relationships Ambassadors, and will fund training, resources, and promotional materials.
Since April, The National Lottery Community Fund has awarded nearly £10 million to community and voluntary groups across Wales with the majority helping communities adapt to COVID-19. The Fund continues to prioritise applications supporting communities through the outbreak and remain open to ensure National Lottery money reaches communities through this crisis and beyond.

Speaking today Nick said: “I was very pleased that King Henry VIII School has been successful in its grant application to the National Lottery Community Fund Wales.
“Since April nearly £10 million has been awarded to community and voluntary groups across Wales, thanks to the National Lottery, and
thanks to National Lottery players, up to £600 million has been made available to support communities throughout the UK during the Coronavirus crisis.”
