Lifestylish.com Community Fund
The Lifestylish Community Fund is a pot of money dedicated to local organisations and charities in and around the Bacup area. As a local, independent business, we wanted to do our bit for the community and give a little something back.
Here's who we're helping...
Weir Riding Centre
Weir Riding Centre provides horse-riding and equestrian care classes to children in the local area. They also run dedicated classes for children with learning disabilities.
With the help of our Community Fund, they have bought some practise jumps for ounger children to use and a brand new 3 yard gate.
Veterans in Communities
An East Lancashire based charity for veterans that have difficulties transitioning back into everyday life after serving in the Forces, Veterans in Communities have a 5-a-side football team that meets once a month. But they had no kit!
So a portion of the Lifestylish Community Fund has been spent to buy plenty of full football kits for the veterans to play in. We'll post a pic of the players in their new kit when it arrives.
Keep Whitworth Tidy
Keep Whitworth Tidy is a volunteer group that picks up litter and rubbish from the streets of Whitworth to keep the village tidy. We think it's a fantastic cause (nobody likes litter, do they?) so we bought some hi-vis vests for the volunteers to wear when they're out and about, making sure they stay seen even in the darkness.
