£2,020.84 That’s the money you have helped us raise to complete our conservation and library project in Penistone!

As a member, every time you shopped at Co-op, 1% of what you spent on selected own-brand products and services went to our Co-op Local Community Fund Project. Between April and November this year your donations helped us raise over £2,000 so that we can provide a small nature reserve where our young people will learn all about conservation, birdlife, animals and insects. Additionally, we will provide and maintain little libraries around Penistone, these are essentially small wooden buildings that are filled with books to borrow and replace.

We will link them with on a walking trail, and hopefully, give our community the opportunity to visit each one and pick up a good book to read. Penistone Scouts will maintain the libraries, adding extra books and content. The libraries will also become community hubs with places to post information about whats on in our community.
