Co-op Community Give Back

Over the past year, BDCPS have been one of the chosen community projects which our local Co-op stores in Bedford and Kempston chose to support. Thanks to all the Co-op members for choosing BDCPS each time you bought certain Co-op branded products, which gave a percentage back to us! Your generosity totalled a phenomenal £4235.86 which was presented on a nice big cheque from the lovely Claire and David in Kempston on 23rd November. This will mean we can continue to run the family hydro swim sessions for another year! For more information about Family Swim and to find out how you can come along, please email jane@bdcps.org.uk

Bingo – Eyes down for another fun, family friendly occasion!

Cake Sale/Table top/Clothes sale – A sale of any kind is a fantastic way to raise some money! You might want to do cakes for people to eat, or if you are having a clear out of clothes/shoes or any items you no longer want it is a great way to de-clutter!
