We were delighted to visit the Swinnow Lane Co-Op on Saturday 25th November to join in their Community Fund celebrations and receive a cheque for the funds raised for Sunshine & Smiles.
We were overwhelmed to be presented with £3897.55 which will go directly to running a variety of different groups and activities for children and young people who have Down syndrome and their families.
Carol Gray from Farsley Co-Op said:
‘So proud to be part of the Co-Op and our Membership contributing every day to our local communities.’
Sunshine & Smiles families including Lou, Niall, Ben, James & Elliott Cook and Ailith, Aiyana & Thalia Harley-Roberts enjoyed facepainting, a tombola and a penalty shoot out at the celebration event.
Lou Cook, who is a parent from Sunshine & Smiles and also a Co-Op employee, was very glad to be able to say thanks:
‘Incredibly proud and humbled to be part of our Co-Op more than ever today. What a difference the money raised will make to Sunshine & Smiles and not to mention my lovely Ben taking centre stage!’
