Tenby Gateway Club scoops £200 from the Co-op
Friday, 06 July 2012
A donation of £200 from The Co-operative’s Community Fund has helped Tenby and District Gateway Club towards the cost of a new laptop.
Ailsa Logan, membership officer for The Co-operative in West Wales, said: “Because our members own the business, they get a share in any of the profits we make. It’s a scheme we’re very proud of, not only because it gives us the chance to thank members for shopping with us, but because so many people choose to give something back to local communities.”
Co-operative members receive a payment twice a year based on the points they earn when they trade at any of the Group’s businesses, including The Co-operative Food, Travel, Pharmacy and Funeralcare, as well as The Co-operative Bank, Smile and The Co-operative Insurance.
“There is around £200,000 available in this region, each year, from the Community Fund, and we welcome applications from local groups and projects for £100 to £2,000,” said Ailsa.
Community Fund application forms are available online at www.co-operative.coop/communityfund or by phoning 0844 262 4001. Awards are allocated by local Co-operative members’ committees, based on a set of values and principles such as social responsibility and caring for others. Groups can apply for funding once a year.
