Rodley Nature Reserve will benefit from now until March 2017 from shoppers’ purchases at Farsley, Pudsey and Swinnow Lane Co-op food stores and Bramley Co-op Funeral care, writes Maggie Bellwood.
The reserve was successfully nominated to the Co-op’s Community Fund by Angela Andrews, a local Co-op worker and regular reserve visitor. The fund raises money for local causes.
Reserve Volunteer Denese Swann said:
“We already do lots of great things with our young naturalists and the support of the Co-op and its customers will help us do even more to encourage families to get up close to nature, thanks to Angela’s thoughtfulness. Please help us make the most of this great opportunity!”
People can help by:
- Joining the Co-op on line at www.coop.co.uk: at least 1% of money spent will go to your chosen cause
- Spending the housekeeping budget at ‘our’ local Co-op stores, Farsley, Pudsey and Swinnow Lane!
- Telling friends, family and work colleagues how they can get involved.
