As part of our Leaving a Legacy Programme to support local community groups, on our Cyncoed Campus Car Park project at Cardiff Metropolitan University, we have made 3 donations to Cardiff Community Groups and Sports Clubs – Apollos ABC, WISP Judo Wales and 1st Rhiwbina Scout Group. It has been great to meet with them all and find out more about the amazing work they have been doing within the local community of Cardiff.
