A £1 Million charity payout has been allocated to local communities recommended by workers at the Ford Bridgend Engine plant, which closes next month.
A skeleton staff is running down the operation after it stopped making engines in September and the site will close after 40 years of production as part of a reassessment of its European operations.
Over half the money will go to local sports clubs, while schools, charities and community groups will get about a third.
The rest will be spread among welfare and care groups, as well as hobby clubs, community groups and religious places.
A Ford spokesman said the recipients had been suggested by the plant’s employees and approved by their charity committee.
