Co-op local good causes

Exciting news ...... MAYFACS is one of the Co-op's local good causes from now until 23 October 2021!! Specifically, the money raised is to go towards our new venture, the MAYFACS SHED. 


How it works at no extra cost to you. 

When you buy selected Co-op products and services from the Co-op, 2p for every £1 you spend goes into your Co-op Membership account. They give the same amount to support community organisations and local causes. Our local Co-op has selected 3 local causes, of which MAYFACS is one. If you don’t select a cause, your donation will be split three ways so….. PLEASE CHOOSE MAYFACS!


As schools went back on 8th March, we have stopped our "help with home schooling" programme.

You can still access the links below for Storytime with Shirley. For children aged between 7 - 11 years old.

MAYFACS Hardship Fund

With the current economic climate we anticipate that now and in the coming weeks some people may be struggling to manage to pay for food and other bills, such as utilities, rent etc. with funds running out, or have no income coming in. We would like to offer some small financial support where possible through the MAYFACS Hardship Fund, in conjunction with the Mayfield Trust.

If you are in financial difficulty please email hardshipfund@mayfacs.org.uk or ring 01435 873888, leave a message and we will contact you. Any help will depend on availability of funds and each case will be considered on an individual basis and in strict confidence.
