Donations for Cotteridge Park

donations buckets

Thank you to all the friends and family of Sheila Thornton who have made such generous donations in her name to the Friends of Cotteridge Park.  Sheila had been staunch supporter of the park for many years and requested that donations be made to the park instead of having flowers at her funeral. Sheila was a particular fan of CoCoMAD and we will make sure that the £1300 that has been donated will ensure that more people have more fun in Cotteridge Park
