A huge thank you to the Co-op on Thorpe Road and the Co-op on Oundle Road for promoting Peterborough Association for the Blind at their ‘Celebration Day’ on Saturday.  Pictured above is PAB Chairperson Sylvia Wheeler (far right) with Thorpe Road store manager Tracey Wiles (middle) and staff member Michelle Whyman (left).

‘It’s a privilege to have been picked as one of the Co-op Local Causes’ said Sylvia.  ‘The money being raised will go some way to ensuring that blind and partially sighted people have the opportunity to become involved with the wide range of activities and services that the PAB have to offer’

The Co-op ‘Local Cause’ is a scheme set up by the Co-op where each store supports three local causes. Co-op members can go online or call 0800 023 4708 to choose which of the causes they would like to support.  The Co-op will then donate 1% every time that member shops, to their chosen cause.

If you are not already a member of the Co-op you can join in store or online. Every time you shop you will earn 5% back and the Co-op will give us a 1% donation too. Click here to log into your account and choose PAB as your local cause or to become a member of the Co-op.
