Ogi has awarded £5,000 to community groups as part of the latest funding round of its grant programme Cefnogi.

Around 20 groups will benefit from a cash boost, volunteering opportunities and community workshops.

Among those benefiting are a Head Boy and Girl duo from Alaw Primary School in Tonypandy, a community mud kitchen in Maesteg, and a woodland school in west Wales.

Launched in 2022, the programme has so far given away more than £40,000, supporting hundreds of local groups across over 60 communities.

Head of Brand and Engagement, Sarah Vining, said: “Supporting everything from local Scots groups to warm spaces, women in business events, garden clearing and arts festivals, the programme is now well and truly embedded in our culture.

“Many of our staff, contractors and supply chain partners live in these towns and villages, and this initiative, bringing small, but no less vital, cash injections is our way of giving back to those that are providing much needed support locally.”
