Meet our friends

“Roperhurst has been based in Barry since 1991. The majority of our staff are local to the area and we have often employed more than one generation of the same family. We feel a great affinity to our community and becoming a Friend of CFW was the opportunity to give something back. It puts us at the heart of our community, and will hopefully play a part in encouraging those around us to take the same step.”

"When I found out what fantastic work Community Foundation Wales does, and particularly in supporting our communities in Wales during Covid, I wanted to give my support by becoming a Friend. It is an easy way to know that my small contribution is really making a difference."

"I became a Friend after attending a Community Foundation Wales event and realising properly, for the first time, the wide range of work they do for communities in Wales. The organisation I run puts education, community health and wellbeing, and support and opportunities to those who need it most at our heart. Community Foundation Wales shares the same values and obviously do this to the highest of standards - whilst also advising people who have the personal means to find the right projects and people to support. With so much synergy it was something I had to have a closer connection with – and becoming a Friend has allowed that."

"Pleased to be able to give a little bit back to my local community via Community Foundation Wales' targeted support."

"It’s everyone’s responsibility to drive a positive change in their community. It’s easy to get lost in your own world, going about your daily life and not considering those who don’t have the same opportunities. But if we all give a little, we can create equitable opportunities and a better world for everyone."
