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.

“Thumbelina”, a lovely Pantomime!

The mature enthusiasm and confidence, clear speaking and good expression of the actors and chorus line, aged between 9 and 18, was very impressive.

The amazing and spectacularly larger-than-life costumes highlighted the effort and work the crew and production team had put into staging Stephen Hill Youth Pantomime’s 52nd production, was clear for everyone to see.Helen D Gill

As the curtain came down on an outstanding example of musical youth theatre, Crosspool Forum chair, Ian Hague, came on stage and presented, producer and organiser, Helen Delaney Gill with the “2019 Crosspool Person of the Year” award.  This award recognises the outstanding contribution Helen has made to Pantomime, going above and beyond to care about the community and consistently giving up time and effort to help others.

New CCTV in Crosspool

As part of the positive initiative and commitment to ensure that the Crosspool precinct remains a vibrant place to shop and dine in Safety, the Crosspool Forum, in collaboration with the police and Sheffield City Council, has funded the installation of a new CCTV high definition night vision camera.

CCTV CameraInstalled in the Crosspool shopping precinct as a preventative deterrent against crime, anti-social behaviour, the high quality of the camera’s footage will make it easier to identify offenders and maximise public safety. Only the police and or the Sheffield City Council will be permitted access to footage from the CCTV system and will only download any footage they deem important enough to resolve a case of crime or an incident of anti-social behaviour.

It is hoped that the new camera will give people confidence in knowing that evidence from the cameras will be readily available to help identify and track offenders.
