Putting the 'fun' in fundraising!

Thrill seekers young and old can now purchase heavily discounted entry tickets to an Essex theme-park, thanks to an ‘everybody wins’ initiative between Southend’s Adventure Island, Danbury Park School and the Co-op store in Danbury, owned by Chelmsford Star Co-operative.

Essex’s number 1 theme park, which reopens for the winter season on February 15th, is providing the Danbury community with greatly reduced tickets that can be used at any point in the year, and the good news is that every time one is purchased from the local store, the nearby school will earn money.

Take a (wine) tour of Italy...

Stunning tipples from different regions

  1. Irresistible Gavi, Piedmont
    From the home of the famous red wine, Barolo, this zesty white is often overlooked. Great for Sauvignon Blanc lovers, try it with pasta and pesto.
  2. Co-op Soave, Veneto
    Better known for producing Prosecco and Amarone, the Veneto is also home to Soave, a shareable, easy-drinking white that’s a good match for salads and other light dishes.
  3. Co-op Chianti, Tuscany

Experts recommend our funeral team again...

A representative said, “A test we always apply is ‘would this organisation be good enough for our mum?’ and with Co-op Funeral Directors it 100% is.”

Chelmsford Star helps provide support to Australia...

The Australian co-op sector is providing support for emergency relief and future reconstruction following the ongoing bushfires crisis, which has seen homes destroyed across eastern Australia, communities devastated, lives tragically lost, and wildlife populations decimated.

Chelmsford Star stands alongside our Australian co-op allies, and so we have donated $1000 AUD to assist them in their efforts.
