FoRP board members were made very welcome at the Hartburn Co-Op on Saturday 25th. November. Our treasurer June was presented with a cheque for £1600. This means that the Co-Op has raised over £2600 towards the FoRP sculpture trail around Ropner Park.
FoRP has already commissioned a feasibility report and discussions are continuing with Stockton Council to determine the details.
Once the plans have been finalised 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
