On 17th November COG was presented with a cheque for £50 from Westhoughton Community Royalty.

On Thursday 21st November I went to do a talk to "Moving Forward" a group of young adults with Learning Disabilities at Brownlow Fold Community Centre .  The picture shows me (centre) and some of the students.


They have decided to do some fundraising for COG, by selling items they are making.


Thanks to them.



The 10 Primary schools, that make up the cluster, in conjunction with the "MILE Awards",  held various events including selling cakes, hand made jewellery & plants etc. and a very successful online Auction all to raise funds for us.

Cheques have been received from :-

St Matthews Little Lever - £145.00

St Saviour's Stoneclough - £183.02

St Stephen's - £38.00

Spindle Point - £212.28

Prestolee - £439.00

On Line Auction - £2293.08

Gift Aid - £561.27


A magnificent total of £3871.65

Some of the money will be used to provide some music & dance and sport based activity sessions for the children.  The remainder will be used towards the running costs of the mini-buses.

Staff at Meridian Business Sales have been running Dress Down Friday over the last 12 months and raised a magnificent amount of £1195.18, which they donated to COG.


They were so taken with what we do here at COG, when they visited us on Friday 15th November, that they have pledged any other fundraising efforts will also be donated to us.


Thanks to all who took part.
