THIS year the Roy Humphreys Centre has been chosen to benefit from the Co-op Local Community Fund. At a time when funds for charitable organisations are becoming more difficult to access, we’re incredibly grateful for this opportunity to make a real difference in Longford.

We are raising funds for/to the centre to access funds that will support older service users to have a day out and to run community events at the centre.

To help us raise vital funds, we’ll be relying on Co-op shoppers.

Every time they buy Co-op own-brand products they get a five per cent reward for themselves, and a further one per cent goes to local causes like ours.

Co-op members can decide which local group they would like to back by going online

We really hope that people will visit the website and choose to support us.

If you’re not a member and would like to support us, you can join at your local store or online at

When a community comes together we’re able to achieve great things, so we hope you can help promote our project. For more information about us, please visit The Roy Humphreys centre on Facebook.
