Winthrop and the Co-op

by | 11 March 2021 | Local Charity, Rotherham

Winthrop Gardens and Tea Rooms is a hugely popular community resource in Wickersley – much missed during the COVID-19 pandemic, when it has had to remain closed. But Winthrop has been successful in a bid to the Co-op Local Community Fund as one of the Wickersley Good Causes for 2020 / 2021. The successful Winthrop bid was to support the post COVID-19 re-opening and allow Winthrop to resume the activities and events which support both local people and volunteers.
Everyone who is a ‘member’ of the Co-op can help Winthrop – and if you are not already a member you can join very easily – it only cost £1.00! Co-op members get a 5% ‘divvy’ on everything they spend on Co-op products and can also donate an extra 2% to a ‘Community Project’ (like Winthrop). That means that if you pledge your support to Winthrop they will receive 2p out of every pound you spend on Coop products – and in the next 12 months, every penny will really count! It’s a really great way to support a valued community resource!!
