Speaking after the presentation evening on 6th
April, Nolan Charity Fund founder and trustee,
Nolan Nicholas, said:
“It was a wonderful evening and a great way to
mark two years as a charity.
“We have now donated over £25,000 to nearly
20 worthy causes in Wales since the charity
began, and to recognise this year’s beneficiaries
was a great honour for me.
“There are so many organisations that need a
helping hand to realise their goals and aspirations
and I am so please to see that the Nolan Charity
Fund is able to do this to ensure all the good
work in Wales can continue.”
Commenting on assessing the 2016 applications,
Nolan Charity Fund trustee Robert Taylor, said:
“This year has been extremely difficult to choose.
With almost 30 applications there were some
very poignant stories and strong reasons for
financial support being sought.
