We are self-funding and re-invest all profits back into the Community Centre building and the activities which take place there. We rely in-part on fundraising support from the local community. There are a few simple ways you can help us to raise funds – some at no cost to you.
1. Co-op Local Community Fund: You can help us by spending money at the Co-op in the village, using your membership card. Sign-in online to choose which local charity to support. If not already a Co-op member, you can join for just £1: account.coop.co.uk/sign-in
2. Easyfundraising: Simply follow this link: https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/cottenhamcc/ On first usage you’ll need to ‘Support this cause’ and register. You’ll then be prompted to ‘Collect Donation’ each time you visit a website of a participating retailer (John Lewis, M&S and many more.) Again, there is no direct cost to you.
3. Community Centre Membership. For details, see: membership.
4. Donations: We are always happy to receive your donations. These can be made by bank transfer using these details:
