Friends of YHY

Friends of Yr Hen Ysgol was set up in 2009 to ensure the charity has a sound financial basis for the future. In particular, funds are used for major development projects to improve the buildings and facilities. Friends Donation Form

Initial projects focused on making the building weatherproof.  Recent major developments include replacing flat roofs with pitched roofs, replacing ill-fitting windows, renovating damp walls and creating a rear access lobby.  The cost of these projects was well beyond current income from bookings and fundraising events.

While most of the development costs were covered by external grants, financial input from the Friends has been vital.  In the future, grants awarded by external bodies are likely to require an increasing contribution from the recipient as a condition of the award.  The continued development of the Friends ‘Capital Fund’ is therefore vital to enable us to enhance facilities.  Several projects are now being considered including renovation of the meeting room.

We cordially invite you to become a ‘Friend of Yr Hen Ysgol’ by supporting this ‘Capital Fund’.  Please donate whatever you can to help secure the future of our community centre by completing the Donation Form below or directly by banking app.
