Co-op Colleagues’ heart-warming Rwanda trip

Co-op Colleagues’ heart-warming Rwanda trip

A handful of staff from Lincolnshire Co-op have journeyed 4,000 miles to Rwanda to see how money raised by the Society has been helping young people set up co-operative businesses.

Throughout the year colleagues have been taking part in lots of activities to raise money for two charities; Pascal, a co-operative of Age UKs in Lincolnshire, and Plan UK, an international children’s development organisation. The Society’s fundraising for Plan is going towards a project to help young people pull themselves out of poverty in the poorest regions of Rwanda. To see just what a difference the money is making, three of the Society’s top fundraisers, Scott Clarke from Lincoln Road Foodstore in Sleaford, Karen Howseman from Ruskington Foodstore and Ryan Gryniewicz from Newbridge Hill Foodstore in Louth, joined Membership and Community Manager Sam Turner, Charity of the Year Co-ordinator Faye Niblett and Chief Executive Ursula Lidbetter on the trip.
