Call to support charity which has been selected among supermarket's Good Causes for year

by Henry James (November 2020)

WEST Lancashire charity Sporting Challenge has been selected as a Co-op Good Cause for the year October 2020 to 2021.

Sporting Challenge is a family led charity, which started in 2008 and operates in West Lancashire supporting people with learning disabilities.

The charity aims to provide sporting activities to encourage people with learning disabilities to keep fit and healthy.

There activities include: Aerobics, Bowling (in Southport), Boccia, Kurling, Zumba/Dance, Swimming and other fitness activities.

They provide support in the West Lancashire area to adults over 18 with a learning disability to access a variety of activities by providing transport to and from their homes, and the appropriate sessional workers to support them while carrying out their sports/social activities.

In 2019 the Coop delivered £17m to more than 4,000 local causes, thanks to their members.

People can join Co-op for £1 and choose a local cause to support in the community.

When they buy selected Co-op products and services, 2p for every £1 spent goes back to the shopper.

The company will give the same amount to support community organisations and local causes.
