Young people and staff from POINT sang their hearts out at Fishguard’s Co-Op store on Wednesday, December 20.

They aimed to raise awareness of the benefits of the Co-Op Community Fund, for both customers and local charities, and to spread some Christmas cheer among Co-op customers.

Fishguard’s POINT youth drop-in centre is open, for young people aged between 11-25, six days a week, 50 weeks of the year.

Young people have opportunities to access projects such as the healthy living project, which encourages and supports young people to make more healthy choices regarding the food they choose to eat and by increasing their exercise.

POINT offers 25 pence healthy meals four days per week in the drop in, often using produce they have helped to grow from the POINT garden. Young people have access to a huge range of adventure and sporting activities ranging from coasteering, fit Fridays, beach walks, weekly football and the POINT Olympics.

POINT was chosen as one of the Co-op Community Fund’s charities, which has helped it to offer such a diverse range of and to provide subsidised healthy meals.

By becoming a Co-op member in-store or online for only £1 and by choosing a local charity such as POINT, every time you buy selected Co-op products the business gives 1% of what you spend to local causes.

“It is a fabulous scheme that has massively benefited the young people we work with” said Zoe Davies, General Manager of POINT. “A big thank you to Co-op Community Fund.”
