The Hedley Foundation Grant
The Hedley Foundation:
The Hedley foundation is an organisation that provides grants to smaller charities operating across the spectrum of social need. Last year they supported hundreds of charities, helping to improve lives and uplift people’s aspirations.
Here at Llanrumney, we have been lucky enough to have been awarded a grant from the foundation. The overall aim of this is to help some of the most marginalised, local people in the community of Llanrumney to re-engage with each other. It’ll allow them to make best use of the new community facilities we have developed at the Hall, and to maximise the benefit of socialising in our newly refurbished Community Café – Thackeray at the Hall.
The Hedley Foundation has allowed us to offer the following:
One month of FREE lunches, once a week, for young mums with their new babies.
This will give the individuals the chance to socialise with other mums and get their babies interacting with others. They’ll also be able to use the range of facilities we have to offer. It will be the same ground week by week, allowing for strong relationships to be built.

One month of FREE afternoon teas once a week for socially isolated elderly individuals who may be secluded and in need of some socialising. We want to reach out to people who may live alone or who are bereaved and would benefit from socialising.
This is a great way to reconnect and socialise with people following the 2 years of COVID lockdown. Also, a great opportunity to use our facilities and see what else we have to offer. This will be split into two groups, having different dates and times.
