We’re so pleased to share this film with you about our work and the work of Siop Griffiths, Penygroes, Wales, one of the community shops that we’re incredibly proud to have supported through our advice, training and technical expertise.

This film is a celebration not only of the amazing impact of Siop Griffiths – working to provide skills and a future for young people in rural Wales – but also recognition of the long-term support Plunkett has received from the Esmeé Fairbairn Foundation as a partner and a funder.

Siop Griffiths rescued one of the oldest buildings in their village – they’ve created a place for young people to develop digital skills, a repair café and very soon a co-working space too!

This short film, created and supported by Esmeé Fairbairn Foundation, helps to tell their story too. This year, Esmeé celebrate their 60th Birthday and they’ve commissioned a number of short films that tell the amazing stories and impact of their work – its scale and its breadth. If you’d like to find out more about their work visit Celebrating 60 years of Esmee Fairbairn Foundation.
