Local charities in north Pembrokeshire have benefited from £12,111 from the Co-op’s Local Community Fund.

Through the funds the Co-op helps groups and charities promote their work throughout the year, presenting the cheque at the end of the year at a celebration event.

Co-op members can choose which charities they want to support through the community fund which has shared more than £100m with over 36,000 unique community projects across the UK since 2016.

The celebration event in the Fishguard store gave money to Point Youth Centre, Fishguard and Goodwick RNLI and Treginnis Farm for City Children.

Point Youth Centre in Fishguard was given £4,352 which it will use to help provide free meals after school and at weekends for local young people.
