WHS RECEIVE GENEROUS GRANT FROM THE CO-OP CUSTOMERS:

The Society was very pleased to receive a cheque for £1,256.47p from the Co-op as part of their 'Local Community Fund' scheme, were customers can donate a percentage of their dividends to local good causes. We were very pleased at just how much support we received from the good folks in Whitworth, and you can rest assured that this generous donation will be put to very good use. Below you can see a photograph of Society Chairman Mr Brian Furness receiving the cheque from staff members at the Whitworth Co-op. This is a great scheme for local groups who have to raise their own funds, and more information about this can be found at the following webpage: https://www.coop.co.uk/membership/local-community-fund
