Wooler Christmas lights to benefit from Co-op funding
A Co-op grant of over £3,000 is to be put towards further improvements to the Christmas lights in Wooler.
Wooler Parish Council was recently presented with a cheque for £3,125.86.
Chairman Mark Mather said: “They are a big store for Wooler but this shows they have the community at heart.
“They do great work locally and this support makes a huge difference. It’s a fantastic amount of money.
“I’d like to thank them and all the members of the public who have helped to contribute.”
Wooler Young People’s Association also received £3,294 and 1st Wooler BP Scout Group was granted £3,055.
The Co-op has handed over £73,000 to 24 good causes across north Northumberland and the Scottish Borders.
This is the latest round of pay-outs from the local community fund, and brings the amount the Co-op members have invested in causes in this area to £236,000.
