Sporting Challenge – Raising Funds via the Co-op Local Community Fund

This year, Sporting Challenge has been chosen to benefit from the Co-op Local Community Fund.


At a time when funds for charitable organisations are becoming more difficult to access, we’re incredibly grateful for this opportunity to make a real difference in West Lancashire.


We are raising funds to help our group members with learning disabilities to take part in sports sessions and take them on a short break to an ‘Outward Bound’ centre.


To help us raise vital funds, we’ll be relying on Co-op shoppers. Every time they buy Co-op own-brand products they get a 5% reward for themselves, and a further 1% goes to local causes like ours.  Co-op members can decide which local group they would like to back by going online We really hope that people will visit the website and choose to support us.


If you’re not a member and would like to support us, you can join at your local store or online at


When a community comes together, we’re able to achieve great things, so we hope you can help promote our project. For more information about us, please visit
