Vote for Wastesavers in the National Lottery Awards

Posted on the 14th September 2021

Having beaten off stiff competition from over 1,500 organisations, Reuse Network member, Wastesavers, have made it to the public voting stage in this year’s National Lottery Awards. 

The charity’s network of seven reuse shops across Newport, Cardiff and the Valleys has been nominated for National Lottery Project of the Year and has been recognised for its work supporting community members who are struggling financially, helping divert useable household goods from going to landfill and providing training and upskilling opportunities to volunteers. 

The charity’s Manager, Alun Harries, said: “We are delighted to have been made a finalist in this year’s National Lottery Awards- even more so because there are so many incredible projects. 

“Thanks to National Lottery funding, we are able to consistently deliver initiatives and outreach work that help alleviate household poverty and support those who are most in need in the community. All this is achieved whilst raising awareness and educating people about the importance of reuse as well as recycling. 

“To be recognised for everything that we do is an honour and we really hope people will get behind us.” 

This year’s National Lottery Awards are celebrating the inspirational people and projects who do extraordinary things with the help of National Lottery funding. The winner of the prestigious award will receive a £3,000 cash prize for their project and the iconic National Lottery Awards trophy.
