Dunmow and District Stroke Support Group received £2,854, and Accuro - which helps young people with disabilities in West Essex - received £2,655 to buy materials for activities and trips.


The 1st Dunmow Scout Group received £2,291 to go towards replacing their large mess tent, which is more than 30 years old.

Rebecca Birkbeck, director of community and member participation at Co-op, said: "We’re really proud of our Local Community Fund and the impact it’s had supporting thousands of local causes across the UK.

"These groups deliver incredible grassroot projects, enabling them to provide important services, support and activities for their diverse communities."
