Many of us shop at the Co-op to get a few bits and pieces on the way home from work or when you're short of milk and bread. The Co-op puts helping communities at the centre of everything they do.
We have been selected as a Cause that you can support, simply by shopping at your local Co-op and scanning your membership card. Our cause is linked to the Stump Cross Hill Co-op Food store but you can shop at any of the National Co-op stores.
Sleaford Little Theatre is an artistic oasis and a rare historical gem for Sleaford and surrounding areas. The objects of the charity are to advance education by the encouragement of the arts, including drama, mime, dance, singing and music, and to provide facilities for practical participation in the production and performance of stage plays and other similar activities.
How does SLT bring people in the community together?
We wish to provide a safe and inspiring artistic environment for the younger members of the community and contribute towards a new generation of theatre professionals. As a unique setting for a cinema in Sleaford, we want to create a Georgian interpretive element for the Sleaford Heritage Trail and wider town tourism, improve green energy operations, and increase our heritage offer and pride of place.
