Bluestone Foundation

The Bluestone Foundation was established to help people to help themselves through environmental, economic and social projects in Pembrokeshire. The Foundation underpins the ethos of Bluestone National Park Resort; our unique and beautiful county and its people are close to our hearts. We plan to provide economic growth and social opportunities to the people of West Wales through projects funded by the money we raise. We are proud to work in partnership with PAVs who help applications through the process before passing them on for the consideration of the Bluestone Foundation Committee who are made up of employees from around the resort. 

The Foundation is supported by the generous donations of the guest on resort and through fundraisers organised by the 700 staff on resort. In 2017, the Bluestone Foundation Community Fund donated over £21,000 in grants and support to various projects around the county of Pembrokeshire. 

Here are just some of the projects that we have supported... 


The VC Gallery

We have been proud supporters of the VC Gallery from their very early days. An organisation based in Haverfordwest, The VC Gallery helps veterans and the community through the medium of art engagement. The group is led by Barry John MBE, an artist and former Royal Welsh soldier who served for 24 years.
