Bridgnorth Endowed Receives Co-op Local Community Fund

Bridgnorth Co-op has awarded a cheque for £2651.50 to Bridgnorth Endowed School for its Community Improvement Project.

On Saturday, Mrs Underhill went along to collect the donation, which came from the Co-op Local Community Fund, an initiative that gives money to local organisations to support projects that help to make a difference.

Nationally, an amazing £19 million has been raised since last November and gone on to fund many local projects – from improving community spaces to helping school leavers learn life skills.

Co-op gives 1% of what’s spent on Co-op branded food products in their stores and selected services, as well as money raised from sales of carrier bags and Co-op scratch cards.

Members can log into their account to see the causes their local Co-op is supporting and choose which one they would like their money to go to.

Bridgnorth Endowed’s vision is to improve its facilities, not only for students, but for the wider community. Extra changing facilities are first on the list of upgrades, due to the increasing number of external clubs using the school’s outdoor pitches and courts.

“We are delighted and pleased to receive such a generous donation towards our fundraising,” said Mrs Underhill, Bridgnorth Endowed’s business manager.

“The Community Improvement Project is an exciting development for the school and one that will create huge benefits for our students and the community, now and in the future.”
