A Barry sports and social club has scored a strike, receiving £1,000 from a regional housebuilder to upgrade its skittle alley.
Barry Island Sports and Social Club has received the donation through Persimmon Homes’ Community Champions scheme. Each month the housebuilder donates up to £1,000 to two groups or individuals in the local area.
The club sits at the heart of the Barry community, providing facilities such as a large function room, bar and a sports room, as well as the skittle alley.
The donation from Persimmon Homes will be used to carry out repairs to the club’s skittle alley that a number of local teams currently use. New pins, balls and crash mats for the end of the alley will also be purchased.
John Stokes, who applied for the funding on behalf of Barry Island Sports and Social Club, said: “We are delighted to receive the donation from Persimmon Homes.
“The skittle alley has been in need of some repairs for a while now and the new equipment is also a massive boost for us.
“We are so grateful for the support.”
Victoria Williams, sales director for Persimmon Homes East Wales, said: “It’s fantastic to support a club that is so important to the community.
“The donation should make sure the skittle alley is in great shape for the public and the local teams that use it.”
Persimmon Homes is currently building a range of stunning apartments at its Haven Point development, part of the waterfront development. Prices start £132,995.
