Co-op Local Community Fund

Please select Gladestry to receive support from Co-op Local Community Fund

We are delighted that Gladestry Village Hall has been selected by the Local Co-op Community fund to be one of their three good causes over the next eleven months.

Every time members shop at the Co-op 1% of what is spent on selected own brand products and services goes into the Local Co-op Community Fund. The fund is divided between the three chosen causes with customers able to select the cause that they would most like their 1% to go to. The fund  is divided proportionately according to customer votes, with money raised from the sales of carrier bags being divided equally between the three causes.

Co-op membership card holders can vote for their favourite of the three causes by visiting the Co-op website and signing into their  membership account.

(The process for doing this is  simpler than I expected!)

This is a great opportunity to help raise valuable funds for our hall which will benefit all its users.

If you would like any further information please call Hattie Budd 01544370642

N.B. In about 3 weeks, about £60 had already been collected

Gladestry Active Community Fund


The GACF was set up in November 2003 in order to administer the money still left in the Millennium Fund. A constitution was agreed, and the following objectives defined: - To stimulate and support activities, events and projects within the Gladestry Community Council area. - To aim to use the fund as a sort of seed capital for projects, whereby if a profit is made, some reimbursement is requested, but is not a requirement.
