FUNDRAISERS have hit their target to build a new home for a Menai Bridge after school and holiday club.

Clwb Plant Y Borth director and chair Melanie Jackson was delighted to announce the social enterprise would receive a £71,730 grant from Menter Môn’s Cyfenter scheme to erect a new building at Ysgol y Borth.

Melanie said: “The committee would like to thank everybody involved with helping us achieve our fundraising target, especially Simon Williams for his recent bungee jump.

“It’s absolutely fantastic news that we have been awarded the grant - a lot of hard work has gone into the project and we can finally see light at the end of the tunnel.”

The social enterprise has held several fundraising events over the last 18 months, including a charity auction.

Simon, whose daughter Elise attends the school, took the 300ft plunge at Tatton Park in Manchester earlier this year.

He said: “I'm very proud that I could raise some money for Clwb Plant Y Borth.

“It is a relief on my behalf that I can rely on the club for after school care that is affordable, conveniently located and has friendly staff. There is so much pressure on parents to work these days.

He added: “The new club will be a huge help to parents now and in future years to come.”
Melanie added Clwb Plant Y Borth hoped the new club building would be completed by September next year.
