The People’s Millions – Calon Lan (Pure Heart) Garden of Remembrance, Mid Glamorgan
The next of our previews to The People’s Millions and Jubilee People’s Millions takes us to Mid Glamorgan.
When you lose a friend or family member the result can be devastating. Janice Morgan nursed her son, Steve, as he was dying of cancer but she managed to turn her grief into something for her local community.
Using a People’s Millions grant of £50,000 from BIG awarded to the Bryncynon Community Revival Strategy Ltd, a special garden of remembrance was created at the local healthy living centre. Janice says:
“Sometimes I cry because I still miss him so much but other times I smile. I love the garden the community has created – and I know Steve would be proud of me for doing my little bit to help it happen. That means a lot to me.”
You can read more about Janice’s story and the Calon Lan project here at The People’s Millions website.
The website also gives full details of this year’s projects, all of which are competing to win up to £60,000 in the public vote. Voting begins tomorrow so remember to watch ITV regional evening news every day from Monday to Wednesday and vote for your favourite projects.
