Coxhoe’s community has ensured that local causes have benefited from the Co-op’s Local Community Fund.
If you are a member of the Co-op you are able to sign up to a project. For every pound you spend at the Co-op on its own branded goods 1% of the value is contributed to the local cause that individual members sign up to. The Co-op also contributes to the causes through plastic carrier sales. There were several local causes last year including the Village Hall, The Active Life Centre, Coxhoe Village Hall Play Group and Kelloe Church.
It has been announced that Coxhoe Village Hall is to be awarded £1,345 and the Active Life Centre has been awarded £1,358. This is fantastic for these important community hubs and our communities. The Village Hall Playgroup project is still live and you can sign up to it. Their current total contributions amount to over £580.
The Village Hall and Active Life Centre are just two of 4,000 causes throughout the country which have benefited from the Co-op’s Local Community Fund. Nearly £9 million has been awarded nationally.
The Village Hall Association Management Team and the Board and management of the Active Life Centre have both said a massive heartfelt thank you to all those members of the community who signed up to Coxhoe’s community projects and have helped to make this huge award possible. The Parish Council are very grateful. Thank you.
Coxhoe co-op Members are now urged to sign up to the Coxhoe Village Hall Play Group Project, details of which you can find here.
