Shoppers spending to aid three community projects

Three community groups are to reap the rewards of a token scheme in Hadleigh.

The Porch Project, Hadleigh Community Transport and the Shelley Centre for Therapeutic Riding will all benefit from the scheme, launched by the town’s Co-operative supermarket.

Shoppers will be given a token for every £5 they spend in store before choosing which project they wish to support. Each token is worth 5p to the groups.

“Local people are pleased to be able to support projects in their community and I believe nothing but good can come of this,” said Hadleigh mayor Mary Munson. MSFP-09-01-13 HW 5
