Loteri Cymru People's Choice Charity Partner 2021

We are proud to announce our newest charity partner, as voted by the people of Wales is...

Hope Rescue, dog rescue and rehoming charity in Llanharan has been voted Loteri Cymru’s new charity partner after winning the hearts of the people of Wales.

Hope Rescue will receive an upfront donation of £5,000 together with ongoing financial support from Loteri Cymru. 

Following an extremely challenging year for charities due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we decided to give the people of Wales the power to choose our new charity partner. 

The People’s Choice vote was launched on St Dwynwen’s Day (Welsh Valentine’s Day) and nearly 14,000 votes were cast by the Welsh public keen to show some love to a charity that was close to their hearts.

Hope Rescue, which has been saving the lives of stray, abandoned and unwanted dogs since 2005, usually helps around 900 dogs a year. The charity says the initial £5,000 donation will go towards its ever increasing and essential vet bills, as well as towards the creation of a summer house which will be used by staff and volunteers for training, enrichment, and relaxation (for the dogs), as well as for future meetings with potential adopters.

Congratulations Hope Rescue!

Thank you...

“The past year has been undoubtedly tough on the charity sector, so we are incredibly pleased with the result! Thank you to everyone who voted for us and thank you to Loteri Cymru for the opportunity to receive some much-needed financial support.”

“We’re delighted to receive ongoing support from Loteri Cymru which will allow us to continue our much-needed work helping the most vulnerable pets and pet owners in our local communities. We worked so hard to keep our doors open during 2020 despite the challenges we faced. Storm Dennis flooded and closed our Pontypridd charity shop for most of the year. The Covid-19 pandemic saw us shut our commercial boarding kennels, grooming room, paddock hire and cancelling fundraising events, resulting in an income loss of £1,000 every single day at a time our services have never been needed more. This year is set to challenge us again with the ongoing restrictions of the pandemic continuing to impact our income sources but this support from Loteri Cymru will help us to continue to deliver our valuable services. We are over the moon!”
