Whirlow Hall Farm Trust is chosen as a Co-op Local Community

Whirlow Coop

Whirlow Hall Farm Trust is delighted to have been chosen to benefit from the Co-op Local Community Fund.

At a time when funds for community groups and charitable organisations are becoming more difficult to access, they’re incredibly grateful for this opportunity to make a real difference in Sheffield.

Whirlow Hall Farm Trust is raising funds to support the costs of running their education programmes on their working farm. It costs over £1million each year to run their charity and provide educational visits for children and young people. They have specialist programmes to help children and young people with additional learning needs and/or struggling with their mental health. They work with primary and secondary age children as well as those over sixteen.Whirlow Lamb

Their mission is to ensure there is a place in education for every child.

To help them raise vital funds, they’ll be relying on Co-op members. When a member buys selected products or services from the Co-op they earn a 5% reward for themselves, with a further 1% for local causes like Whirlow Hall Farm Trust.

The Co-op is looking to support organisations that make a difference in their local communities by protecting & improving community spaces, helping people reach their full potential by developing their skills or promoting health and well-being.

Co-op members can choose Whirlow Hall Farm Trust as their local cause by visiting membership.coop.co.uk/causes/34939. They really hope that people will visit the website and donate their 1% to the Whirlow Hall Farm Trust.

If you’re not a member and would like to support them, you can join at your local store or online
at www.coop.co.uk.

When a community comes together they’re able to achieve great things, so they hope you can help promote their project.

OUR PLANET MATTERS

Our Planet Matters to the pupils at   Lydgate Junior School

As part of the Lydgate Junior School’s work as a Rights Respecting School, each year they launch a campaign to raise awareness about a particular issue.

In 2017 they campaigned to make the crossing outside their school safer and in 2018 they took part in the ‘Make Schools Safe’ campaign. This year, their campaign aims to reduce the use of single use plastic in their school, their homes, in the local community and in their city.

Although learning about this issue in their PSHE lessons and aiming to become a Plastic Clever School. they also felt the need to take action so that their campaign results in not only increased awareness of the issue but a change in the way their use (or preferably don’t use!) plastics to show their commitment to their campaign on Thursday May 23rd, the whole school carried posters and banners on an awareness raising march from their school on Shore Lane up Selborne Road through the Shopping precinct and back down Manchester Road.

In addition to the march, all the children across the whole school wrote letters to a wide variety of people asking for their support and urging them to consider their own use of plastics. To ensure their campaign has maximum impact, they are aiming to involve as many people as their can…..and this includes you! They would be grateful if you could find the time to read and respond to the letters enclosed from some of their children. It would mean the world to them if you could reply in some way to acknowledge their letters. Email: enquiries@lydgate-jun.sheffield.sch.uk
