Have your say

COMMUNITY groups have been given thousands of pounds raised through a store’s card scheme.

Bishop’s Waltham Community Swimming received £8,000, the Dynamos Sports Club was given £2,400 and the Gateway Club was presented with £1,600, all raised from the community support card scheme running at The Southern Co-operative’s Bishop’s Waltham store.

Every time customers swipe their card, the Southern Co-operative makes a donation to the fund. The beneficiaries were decided by a panel of local people before the start of the scheme.
