Thanks to a link between Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Manchester and the COOP Foundation, staff from the COOP’s Fresh & Frozen Food Department have been helping at Stockport Lads Club.

On Friday 22nd June 2018 some of the team headed down to the Hempshaw Lane club, to help freshen up the foyer and games room with a lick of paint and little TLC.

Stockport Lads Club are hosting a Community Fun Day on Sunday 1st July 2018, and are keen to get the place looking a little more clean, welcoming and fresher, and the COOP “Superhero’s” swooped in with paint brushes to achieve just that

Harry Hough, Club Leader, said, “We are really thankful to everyone from the COOP team, for coming down and donating their time. It looks so much better and just in time, before we open the doors to the local community on our Fun Day.”

Fiona Clayton from the Fresh & Frozen Team, commented, “We love doing this sort of thing. The team really enjoy making a difference in the local community. This sort of thing helps to bring the team together as well as making a difference to the club. We hope to continue the relationship with Stockport Lads Club."

Another group from the same team are also attending the Fun Day, on Sunday 1st July 2018 to help the club undertake some consultation with the local community, about what they would like to see the club doing in the future and how they encourage more local people to get involved. We are really thankful for all the help they are offering at the Stockport Lads Club, which forms part of an ongoing partnership that Boys & Girls Clubs are developing locally with the COOP Foundation and the COOP.
