Hundreds of school children will be learning about renewable and sustainable energy at Bryngarw Country Park thanks to a grant from Naturesave Trust, an environmental charity funded by the activities of Naturesave Insurance, that promotes the adoption of sustainable development for individuals, businesses, charities and community groups.

The funding will be used to buy Snap Circuits Green Alternative Energy Kits, to develop a community energy project which will educate children on topics including geothermal, hydrogen fuel cells, wind, solar, tidal, hydro and many others.

With over 200,000 visitors per year, Bryngarw Country Park endeavours to engage and educate its visitors and school groups on the importance of renewable energy and its benefits.

Beth Hopkins, the Education and Development Officer at Bryngarw Country Park is thrilled with the benefits this grant will provide. She said: “Every year 1,500 school children visit Bryngarw Country Park to learn about nature and wildlife. This equipment will help us widen our programme and allow us to deliver sessions about renewable energy resources and how to ‘think green’. It will be a great addition to our environmental education offer here at Bryngarw Country Park!”
