The Trustees of the Rest Bay Convalescent Hotel are winding up the charity and are dispersing their remaining funds via Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA) through a grant application process.

The funding awarded by the Rest, totalling around £500,000,will be in the form of one-off, unrestricted donations of up to £100,000 each to the selected charities, but the process of selection will be by a competitive grant process, with applications scored against a number of criteria, including compatibility of aims and objectives, track record and value for money.
