We reached our fundraising goal for the school year 2015-2016!.

 To be able to hand over the £10k cheque to Mr Painter and the school has been a momentus achievement for us, as we do think we have worked pretty hard! But we of course couldn't achieve the amount raised without all your help too in supporting the events.

Local Coop shop supports COSA

Cherry Orchard School Association has been nominated by the Co-op on the Bath Road to be it’s ‘chosen charity’.

Emma Baker, who is a parent at the school and manages the shop, put the arrangement in place after hearing about how Cherry Orchard School Association (COSA) is trying to attract funding from local companies.

Emma said “once I had read that COSA was asking for companies to help support their fund-raising I started thinking about how we could help – the shop is so local to the school it makes sense for COSA to be our chosen charity.”

Staff at the Coop will be available to provide volunteer time to help out at fundraising events, and COSA will be applying for further funding from The Midcounties Co-operative through their Community Support Donation scheme, and Community Fund.

Headteacher at Cherry Orchard Primary School, Mr Michael Painter said “we are absolutely thrilled that COSA has been nominated as it’s chosen charity by the Midcounties Co-operative. The local shop, like the school, is at the centre of the community, and it is great that we can work together in this way”.

Dominique Bray, chair of COSA said “We are delighted to have been selected as the chosen charity by our local Co-Operative store. The majority of our parents regularly use the store and know it well and it will be great to have a closer relationship with the shop and the staff in the future”.
