Little Bryn Gwyn Dream Comes True

Our Director, Margaret Jervis attended  People’s Postcode Lottery’s Annual Charity Gala held in Edinburgh’s famous Assembly Rooms along with our Down to Earth Partner, Mark McKenna and received a cheque beyond our wildest dreams of £583,000 towards creating a landmark residential centre replacing Little Bryn Gwyn our much loved ramshackle cottage on the Gower.

‘Building Our Dreams’ is a joint project between Valleys Kids and Down to Earth Project and will  enable us to work with the most vulnerable and disadvantaged young people in South Wales to build the new centre.

Margaret Jervis, our Operational Director  said: “For the last 10 years we have dreamt of transforming Little Bryn Gwyn, our cottage on the Gower, into a landmark residential centre using the most beautiful and sustainable building methods available. It is only in partnership with Down to Earth and now, with funding from players of People’s Postcode Lottery through the Dream Fund, that we can create something exceptional and extraordinary and fulfil that dream. But the biggest dream is that young people from some of the most disadvantaged communities in Wales can literally build their own centre and help build a better future for themselves.”

We cannot thank People’s Postcode Lottery and their players enough. The Centre will comprise 2 distinct buildings and this is  a brilliant launchpad towards completing the first building and helping us  raise the remaining funds to complete the second.
