Co-op cash cheer for two groups

Two Mansfield groups have each received £500 from The Co-operative Membership Community Fund to fund local projects.

Manor FC Under 7s will use their £500 to buy a team kit for the new season. The Mansfield Youth Film Project will use their £500 to buy a camcorder and laptop for the project.

The Community Fund is created by members of The Co-operative Group who elect to donate all, or part of their twice-yearly dividend payments directly to the scheme.

l Community Fund application forms are available online at or by phoning 0844 262 4001.

Awards are allocated by local Co-operative members’ committees, based on a set of values and principles such as social responsibility and caring for others.
