A BARRY community association is celebrating after their numbers came up trumps in a lottery bid.
The Buttrills Community Association has been awarded a £4590 Big Lottery Fund grant to install new flooring in its community centre.
Vale MP Alun Cairns said: “I have previously highlighted that the Vale has often missed out on grants and am delighted that we appear to be gaining favour with the Big Lottery fund
“This has been through the Awards for All scheme which aims to support community activity. This is a effective scheme and I would urge local group, clubs and societies within our area to make sure that they apply to the Big Lottery to help make their project or plan is delivered.”
