TORQUAY United Community Sports Trust (TUCST) have benefitted to the tune of just over £2,000 from the Co-op Local Community Fund.
Co-op members have the option to donate 1% of their spend on Co-op own brand products to local causes. Shiphay Co-op manager, Geoff Wood, and his staff presented a cheque to Head of TUCST, Craig Hutcheson for £2,134 on Wednesday.
“We’re delighted with the money that was raised – just over £2,000,” said Craig.” We’ll put that towards our girls' programmes that we are expanding. The money will come in useful and we’d like to thank Shiphay Co-op and their customers very much.”
“We’ve had three different charities locally, but the Co-op Local Community Fund has raised £9 million nationwide, said Shiphay Co-op manager, Geoff Wood.
“It’s brilliant to meet the charities involved. It makes them more than just a picture on a poster.”
TUCST may enter into a new round of the fund soon.
“We’re going to look at entering a volunteer programme in the next round of funding,” said Craig.
