Tony Smith, chief governance officer at Principality Building Society, said: “We’re really proud of the number of people we’ve been able to help since the Future Generations Fund was launched. The stories and projects are inspiring, as are the people who work hard in their communities to support these much needed initiatives.

“We recognise the pressures facing so many community groups given the ongoing cost of living crisis, and that is why we’ve made the decision to make grants available of up to £25,000 in this latest round of funding.”
