Co-op Local Community Fund

We’re delighted that The Wayz Youth Centre has been chosen to benefit from the Co-op Local Community Fund and we wondered if your newspaper could help give us a little extra promotion? 

As you can imagine, the last 18 months have been really challenging for small, charitable groups like ours. The pandemic has drastically affected our fundraising efforts, so we’re grateful to have this partnership with the local Co-op.  

We’re urging local members to choose us as their cause so we can deliver our project and help more young people in Bracknell.  

We’re raising funds to provide young people with positive engagement opportunities, alongside access to support that will help them to make informed choices when attending The Wayz.

The provision would create a safe space for young people to engage in a programme. As part of this, they would have the opportunity to get involved in volunteering and apply those skills and confidence gained; to provide further opportunities for the community. This would include supporting youth offers for younger children, and help delivering a community fun day in 2022. 

When members buy selected Co-op branded products and services, 1p from every pound spent goes to support local causes like ours. 

Co-op members can select us as their local cause by visiting https://membership.coop.co.uk/causes/63084. We really hope that people will visit the Co-op website or download the Co-op app and select us as their Local Community Fund cause so we can continue making a difference.
