COMMUNITY FUNDING SUCCESS

The SCA have been successful in the recent round of community funding. Below there is something that you could do to help. If you sign up to become Co-op members 5% of what you spend goes back to you and 1% goes to the selected community group. It costs £1 to become a member. The current round runs until April 2018.

With the money raised SCA will be buying a wide selection of children's outdoor games and activities with the intention of running events and providing opportunities for families and young people.
