* A scene from the Young 'Uns' recent production of Bugsy Malone.
Customers of the Co-op in Llangollen are being asked to earmark a small percentage of their spending to help a youth drama group in the town.The Young ‘Uns, which is the junior section of Llangollen Operatic Society, has just heard that it has been chosen for the latest round of the Co-op’s Local Community Fund.
This means that Co-op members in the area can opt to allocate one per cent of everything they spend on its branded goods for development of the group which recently celebrated success with its latest show, the musical Bugsy Malone, staged at the Town Hall.A letter from the Co-op tells society bosses: “Your cause will be supported by our Co-op food stores and funeral homes.
“If you’re a Co-op member, you can keep an eye on the funds being raised for your cause by signing into your Co-op membership account.“We’ve kick-started your fundraising with a share of the money from the 5p carrier bags and the re-usable bags that we’ve sold in your community.
“The more members that choose your cause the more money you’ll get.”Young ‘Uns spokesperson Pam Williams said: “I believe that when purchasing items people will either be asked which group they wish to support or they can tell the cashier themselves.
“The other way is logging onto your Co-op account online and you can select the chosen group so that every time your card is swiped at the till it will go straight to the chosen charity automatically.“We hope as many people as possible choose to support Young ‘Uns which does so much good for young people locally.”
