This year KentCOG has been chosen to be part of the Coop Local Community Fund. You can support KentCOG by going online and choosing us as the cause you want to support through your Coop membership card.
Every time you use your membership card when buying selected Coop branded products and services, the Coop will give KentCOG 1p for every £1 spent. This will support the project we have but will also help us to expand what do to grow more food sustainably, offer a wider range of wellbeing activities, develop a tool library for students to use in their own gardens and create a bigger, more diverse, accessible green space for all to enjoy.
