As a supermarket chain hands out donations from a £30,000 fund to charities across our region, has one close to your heart received a much needed funding boost?

Charities across Norfolk have benefited from the Co-Op community fund, which aims to help those who support access to food, health and wellbeing, inclusion and the environment.

Norfolk charities to receive money were:

  • West Norfolk Ride for the Disabled - £3,700 – to help pay for 200 sessions across the next 12 months for disabled youngsters
  • Norwich Cruse Bereavement Care - £1,000 – to fund training courses for bereavement support staff
  • Scrapbox, in Reepham - £650 – to pay for a new computer and printer to support work to reclaim resources destined for landfill, process them and sell them to local community organisations
  • Silver Road Community Centre, Norwich - £500 – to support its ongoing work in the community

Julie Brociek-Coulton, manager of Silver Road Community Centre, said: “The Silver Road Community Centre want to thank Central England Co-op for their generous donation of £500 which will go towards us buying items for our Christmas hampers."
