Veterans Group Chosen as Coop Local Cause

Published by Alison Watson-Shields on

We are delighted that Young At Heart ULO 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 in Stockton on Tees.

We are raising funds for our Service Veterans Group.

Prior to COVID, our activity and social group for service veterans experiencing memory problems or living with dementia was meeting monthly and we would like to re-instate the sessions as soon as we can find a suitable new venue.

To help us raise vital funds, we’ll be relying on Co-op members. When a 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.  

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 wellbeing.

Co-op members can choose a cause 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.
