Shoppers help raise cash for south Warwickshire's most vulnerable young people

Leamington Editorial 25th Mar, 2024   0

SHOPPERS have helped raise much-needed cash for south Warwickshire’s most vulnerable young people.

Your Co-op has donated £7,293 to Young People First – a Leamington-based charity that provides support to some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged young people in the community, providing them with the resources and means to help them grow in confidence, develop life skills and have the best chance of success.

The charity provides activities, clubs and food throughout the year.

The charity’s chief officer Jo Squires said: “This incredible donation from Your Co-op means so much. We truly believe that by working together we can be better and do more for the most vulnerable young people in our community. This donation represents so much more than just financial gain, as the Your Co-op Team has supported us with volunteers, fundraisers, office space, as well as fridges and cots.

“The practical implications of the donation will enable us to pay one of our sessional workers for a year without spending time raising that money, meaning we can invest more time supporting young people who need it most.”

Each time a Your Co-op member shops, a donation from the profits is donated to worthy causes.

Your Co-op spokesperson Tarra Simmons said: “We know how important donations like these are for our charity partners, as they serve the most vulnerable in their communities with much needed care and support.

“To be able to come together with our members, colleagues and customers to support them on this scale means we can keep doing good together and putting the community at the heart of everything we do. We look forward to seeing more of their remarkable work over the coming year and will continue to work closely with our charity partners to learn how we can provide further positive impact for local people.”
