North Wales Car Club will be amongst the latest beneficiaries from the £19 million Gwynt y Môr Community Investment Fund. The fund is a direct result of the partnership between RWE Innogy, Stadtwerke Munchen, the UK Green Investment Bank and Siemens.
North Wales Car Club organise and manage The Cambrian Rally which is a driving force for tourism in North Wales. The Car Club is set to receive £9,596 from the Gwynt y Môr Fund to market and promote the motorsport event taking place on Saturday 13th February 2016.
Judith Phillips from North Wales Car Club said:
““The Cambrian Rally committee is thrilled to receive this generous grant which will help us promote our event to a wider audience. The Cambrian is a major event in the UK rallying calendar and attracts a large number of competitors, their support crews, and spectators to Conwy county. In 2014 it was named British Trials and Rally Drivers’ Association Rally of the Year which is an indication of the time and effort the North Wales Car Club puts into its’ organisation.”
“But the committee isn’t complacent, and is determined that The Cambrian remains in the forefront of community based events in North Wales, while also raising its’ profile nationally and internationally, and in so doing, bringing a boost to the economy of Conwy county in which it’s largely based. To this end the grant is invaluable and very much appreciated.”
