THURROCK Play Network has been chosen to benefit from the Co-op Local Community Fund and we need your help to communicate this to Thurrock.

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 Thurrock.

We are raising funds to enable us to continue to provide FREE activities and craft sessions throughout the borough for the whole of the community.

School holidays can be a testing time for some families, trying to keep the children entertained when trips and outings can be costly. By organising free fun days and intergenerational events, we are able to provide opportunities for children and the community to participate in diversionary activities that dissuade them from anti-social behaviour.

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.
