Co-op Local Community Fund
We are pleased to have been chosen to benefit from the Co-op Community Fund again this year. The last fund provided a welcome £3671.92 which went along way towards buidling the Roundhouse at the Mini-Explorers Preschool and all the accessories like the wood burning stove.
We will again be partnering with the Valliers Wood Co-op Supermarket on Halfway Street, Sidcup.
You will again be helping raise funds for ADO! Shoppers that purchase Co-op branded products and services will raise money for ADO right up until the end of October 2019. Yes, that's a whole year of fundraising. ADO will also recieve an equal share from the sale of carrier bags.
The more you shop, the more Co-op will share with us.
It certainly is an honour to have been selected by Co-op for the second successive round of funding, which proves that we are one of the few good causes in the area focussing on providing a unique service to the community, specifically children and young people who are disadvantaged.
For this round of funding, we are looking to raise funds to improve our Outdoor Education site down at Poets Corner, Keats Road, Welling. This site is being developed to attain Independent Schools status and this of course will involve a lot of investment to improve facilities. Its estimated that we will require at least £5000 of investment to ensure that we meet OFSTED standards for an independent school. This includes adding hot water stations, showers and heating to various areas. We already have electricity onsite, which will help, but this also needs installing and extending to other areas to bring services to the main primary and secondary areas. The Co-op finding will go along way to helping us achieve the standards required.
We have a big community presence in the area and with the support of the Local Community Fund, we can ensure that the return in your investment by shopping at the Co-op on Halfway Street will benefit the community directly.
