Co-op donations

A COMMUNITY group from Belper is celebrating after receiving a donation from the Co-op.

Belper Community Hall, which is behind the library on Bridge Street, has been given £450 worth of paint for internal decoration.

The cash came from Midlands Co-operative’s Making a Difference Community Dividend fund.

Also benefiting was the Derwent Valley Donkey Sanctuary at Cromford, which received £5,000 to complete an extension.

Joy Welch, of the Co-op, said: “We are delighted to be able to help these local groups.”
