Speaking about the funding surgery, James Bird, National Officer for BBC Children in Need Wales, said: “We are calling on organisations working with disadvantaged children and young people across the Torfaen to get in touch and come along to our funding surgery to discuss submitting a funding application for a proposed project and find out more about BBC Children in Need’s grants. We already fund a number of projects in the area and welcome new applications.”

All projects funded by the charity must demonstrate a positive impact on the lives of disadvantaged children and/or young people under the age of 18.
