Barry Town Council is pleased to once again offer grant funding to community organisations that provide services and activities for pensioners, such as Christmas lunches – allowing the older residents of Barry to enjoy a Festive meal this Christmas.

Each year Barry Town Council provides financial support to organisations in the Town. In the last ten years, the Council has provided over £500,000 in grants.

The Christmas lunches grant is now open for applications, with a designated amount of £5.00 per person able to be claimed. Residents of Barry who are members of voluntary organisations that provide Christmas lunches are able to apply, with the closing date set at 31 December 2023.

Leader of Barry Town Council, Cllr Bronwen Brooks said “I am delighted that Barry Town Council is offering grants to voluntary community organisations to help provide Christmas lunches to older Barry residents.
