Cash from Co-op

ANGUS Arts has been awarded £2,000 from The Co-operative’s Community Fund towards the cost of workshops for adults with learning difficulties.

The Community Fund, first established 15 years ago, is created by members of The Co-operative Group who elect to donate all, or part, of their twice-yearly dividend payments directly to the scheme. The funds are then shared with local community projects and groups across the country. Sue Waddicor, of Angus Arts, said: “We are thrilled with the generous grant we have received from The Co-operative, which will help us with the costs of our workshops.” Community Fund application forms are available online at or by phoning 0844 262 4001. Awards are allocated by local Co-operative members’ committees.
