Chapel-en-le-Frith’s Town End Friday Club, a social and luncheon club for the over 70s, has received £1,550 from The Co-operative’s Community Fund.
The money will help cover the annual rental and insurance costs of the group’s base at Town End Methodist Church.
Roy Danson from the Club said: “Our group provides a vital service for the older people living in this community. Our gatherings are a regular social event that people look forward to, and we always provide members with a warm and nutritious meal.
“Thanks to this generous grant from The Co-operative we can continue to run the group with confidence, knowing that our largest yearly outgoings have been covered.”
The Community Fund is created by members of The Co-operative Group who elect to donate all, or part of their dividend payments directly to the scheme which are used to support local community groups.
