Commenting on the grant award, council Chair, Huw Onllwyn Jones, said:
"I am delighted that we can, once again, support Radyr and Morganstown's fabulous May Festival. The RMA undertakes an astonishing amount of work in arranging the festival - and I know that they will raise a huge amount of money for this year's charity, Tenovus.
The Concert in the Park will be extra special this year - as it combines the usual, excellent entertainment with some special features as part of the commemorations to celebrate 75 years since VE Day.
I am also pleased that we can help with the Fun Run. This is a great event for families - and I look forward to seeing young and old running to keep fit - and helping with the fundraising.
We can be justly proud of our festival - and I urge all who live in Radyr and Morganstown to attend as many events as possible. It's all very good fun - and you will be supporting a very good cause".
Tenovus helps fund cancer research and provides services to help people with cancer. You can read more about them here.
VE Day celebrates Victory in Europe, at the end of the Second World War. You can read more here.
