This year, Young At Heart ULO has been chosen to benefit from the Co-op Local Community Fund.
At a time when funds for charitable organisations are becoming more difficult to access, we’re incredibly grateful for this opportunity to make a real difference in Stockton (inc. Thornaby and Ingleby Barwick).
We are raising funds to develop and deliver new social support services and activities for people living with dementia and their carers.
To help us raise vital funds, we’ll be relying on Co-op shoppers. Every time they buy Co-op own-brand products they get a 5% reward for themselves, and a further 1% goes to local causes like ours. Co-op members can decide which local group they would like to back by going online www.coop.co.uk/membership. We really hope that people will visit the website and choose to support us.
If you’re not a member and would like to support us, you can join at your local store or online at www.coop.co.uk.
When a community comes together we’re able to achieve great things, so we hope you can help promote our project. For more information about us, please visit Facebook.
