Welwyn and Hatfield Community Fund Extends Impact

Another two successful applicants have been awarded grants from the Welwyn and Hatfield Community Fund (WHCF), bringing the total number of projects supported to four.

Although the WHCF’s newest funded projects have contrasting outputs, they will aspire to reach people from a perspective of mental and physical health as well as sports participation and development with equally powerful outcomes.

The healthy living project which will be run by Pawel Medowski out of Birchwood Leisure Centre will engage people into social and exercise sessions as a form of rehabilitation and recovery for the mind and body.

Jim Clarke will lead his project as North Mymms Cricket Club’s development officer and aim to maximise the country’s success at the recent world cup and hope to encourage an influx of participants of all ages and abilities in the local area.

Matt Perren, Chair of the Welwyn Hatfield Community Fund said:

‘We’re excited to support a further two projects with ambitious but important aspirations, we also look forward to seeing the impact on the local communities around Welwyn Hatfield.’

The Welwyn and Hatfield Community Fund aims to encourage and develop participation in sport, leisure, and recreational participation of the whole community within Welwyn and Hatfield. Applications are encouraged from community groups, clubs, and organisations to promote participation in any form of activity in order to improve health and wellbeing, both physical and mental.
