A Big Thank You to Co-op

We were chosen as one of the supported causes for the Co-op Community Fund for the last 6 months.

Every time a Co-op member bought a Co-op branded product 1% of their spend went towards the selected local causes like ourselves.

Co-op raised a massive £1471.64 for our charity through this event and we would like to say a big thank you to those who voted for us and the customers who supported the Fund.
