Help us make a difference
Over the past six years, our stores have selected a Local Charity of the Year to partner with, raising over £7 million.
The 2015 scheme will open in May. During May and June, our stores will select a shortlist of local registered charities for our customers to vote on. The charity with the most votes will be selected and supported over the next 12 months through fundraising and volunteering. Check back soon for more.
We are based at Hesters Way Community Resource Centre in Cassin Drive, off Princess Elizabeth Way in Cheltenham, which we manage along with Springbank Community Resource Centre. Hesters Way Community Resource Centre has well equipped conference facilities and a choice of different sized meeting rooms, which are available for hire at excellent rates. A choice of conference menus and buffet options are available at reasonable prices. Springbank Community Resource Centre, in addition to meeting and interview rooms, has a large hall which is available for rent.
We also manage The Neighbourhood Shop in Hesters Way Road which offers a wide range of second hand goods at bargain prices and The Living Room in Rowanfield which offers a range of services.
We are a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee run by local people for local people in the neighbourhoods of Hesters Way, Fiddlers Green, St. Marks, St Peters, Rowanfield, Arle, Cavendish Park, Springfields, Arle Farm and Springbank, which together make up over 20% of the town's population.
We help tackle social exclusion issues and work progressively to involve and empower local residents to improve the local area and quality of life. At our core is a Team of over 40 Volunteers who, in 2013/14, gave over 100,000 pounds of benefit in kind.
