We are delighted that Listening Ear’s Butterflies service has 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, we’re incredibly grateful for this opportunity to make a real difference to our service in Whiston.

We are raising funds for equipment and materials for Butterflies, which supports children, young people and adults who have experienced bereavement or loss.

When a Co-op member buys selected products or services from the Co-op they earn a five per cent reward for themselves, with a further one per cent for local causes like ours.

Co-op members can choose a cause by going online www.coop.co.uk/membership. We really hope that people will visit the website and choose to support us.Β  You can find our listing on their website here.

You can help by sharing this with friends and family and encouraging them to support Butterflies when they shop at the Co-op.
