Thank You to Customers of Leyburn Co-op for Supporting Swaledale Festival

Customers using the Leyburn Co-op have had the opportunity to show their support for three local charities, one of which was Swaledale Festival for our community and education work and Young Artists Platform
Each of the three charities were awarded a sum based on the proportion of votes they received from Co-op shoppers, with a total of £10,243.52 being raised.
On Saturday 25 November our Chairman Sue Miller and two fellow board members met the Leyburn store manager, Jonathan Barker, and there was a formal presentation to the three charities involved. We are delighted to say that Swaledale Festival will receive £3269.91 - WOW! - which will be used to help fund work by professional musicians in a number of schools in the Festival area, and also the appearances by several young artists at the 2018 Festival. The generosity of the Co-op and its customers is greatly appreciated: a huge THANK YOU from us.
