Posted on 30th November 2017 | in Community

St Mark’s URC Church received £2677.10 for their dementia lounge l- r: Rebecca Robinson (Co-op Queen St Manager), Sean White (Area Manager), Sue Swanston and Eric Davison (St Mark’s Church), Becky Haig (Harbour Co-op Manager) and Roy Davison (Co-op Funeralcare)

Three local groups have been presented with cheques for their projects, thanks to Amble Co-op members.

The Co-op Local Community Fund allocates a proportion of sales to local groups and causes.

Every time a member shops at the Co-op, 1% of what they spend on selected own-brand products and services goes to the Co-op Local Community Fund.

Three Amble groups have recently benefitted:  St Mark’s Church, Amble Cadets, and Amble Sports Development Centre were presented with their money at the Queen Street store at the end of November.

Amble Cadets received £2718.29 for their Amble Memorial Garden project. Pictured l- r: Rebecca Robinson (Co-op Queen St Manager), Sgt Katrina Cassidy, Lcpl Grainger, Sean White (Area Manager), Cadet Wilkinson, Becky Haig (Harbour Co-op Manager), Roy Davison (Co-op Funeralcare)

The Ambler has been chosen as one of next year’s beneficiaries.
