Helensburgh Heroes is delighted to announce that it has been selected as one of the three local projects for support by the Co-op Community Fund in the Helensburgh & Lomond Area.
1%of the purchase price or cost of Co-op own branded goods and services purchased by Co-op Members is donated to local good causes as chosen from time to time by Co-op Members. This money, together with money from carrier bag sales, supports many types of community led projects. Co-op members have helped raise over £14 million for local causes to date.
2017 is Scotland’s Year of History, Heritage & Archaeology and the 90th anniversary of John Logie Baird’s first long distance television transmission between London & Glasgow. To commemorate these two milestones, the Charity wishes to publish a book and produce associated educational materials for local schools which celebrates the lives of 100 inspirational men and women with direct connections to the area.
Working with a local author, the book will engender civic pride and inspire every member of the community to feel that they are of worth and that they have a valuable contribution to make. It is hoped that the book will be published by the end of 2017. Co-op Members will have the opportunity to raise funds for the book for 6 months, between April and October 2017.
