Community Library shares in the Big Co-op Payout

When Co-op members shop with at their local store, 1% of what they spend on selected Co-op branded products and services goes to support local causes through their Local Community Fund.

This year Sherburn & Villages Community Library is one of the causes to benefit and on Saturday 23rd November they were delighted to be presented with a cheque for £4150 by Co-op staff.

Paul Doherty, who chairs Sherburn in Elmet Community Trust and the Library Management Group, commented “The Co-op have always been great supporters of local causes and we were delighted to receive this cheque which helps to ensure the future of our local library, which is a great community asset”.
