This charity, known as CAMAD was established to mobilise volunteers to provide help and support, largely to older and less able people. It works around the Machynlleth area of Powys, and helps more than 80 people each week. Amongst its services, CAMAD runs a community car scheme, a lunch club, a meals on wheels project, and a one-to-one assistance scheme helping with dog-walking, or with shopping for example.
In October 2015, Allen Lane made a two-year grant totalling £7,000 towards CAMAD’s general running costs. The funding will contribute towards outcomes for people including reduced isolation, improved well-being, and increased volunteering opportunities.
