Co-operative Funding for Sculpture Trail

Hartburn Co-op has put us on the list of one of the local charities that they support. The Co-op has already donated more than £1,000 to FoRP for the first batch of donations  Quite amazing.

The second series is already underway and local people using the Co-op can help it to grow.

The aim is to provide a sculpture trail around the lake, an ambitious project which should enhance the enjoyment of Ropner Park.

The FoRP committee has realised that we need expert help to move this project forward and will receive this report in August. In the meantime we are gathering information from local artists and woodcarvers. It is possible that some of the exhibits will be in metal. The local community and schools will be encouraged to give their views.

How you can help!

The co-op scheme works like this.

If you take out a co-op card, just like a Tesco or a Sainsbury’s card and register it online. When you register, there is an option to select a local cause which you would like to support. If you choose FoRP, money gradually accrues to our charity.

When you spend in store, 5% of selected products, usually their own brands, goes to the person spending and 1% goes to their chosen cause.

You can find the information in the  Co-op community fund projects.

If you haven’t already got a co-op loyalty card, please consider taking one out. It is a very easy process online and you can support FoRP at no extra cost.

Let`s all join the Co-op
