We're asking you to vote for who you would like to be the chosen charity for our upcoming Charity Edition of our newspaper Glossop Chronicle, which is available to buy at local newsagents throughout Glossop, as we endeavour to help those who need it most in these extraordinarily difficult times.
The charity edition of your Glossop Chronicle costs £1 per copy, with 20p from each copy sold being donated directly to a local charity.
Every three months we will be asking readers to choose just one of three named charities you would like to raise funds for and the money from our charity editions raised over the three months will be donated to that charity.
We will repeat the exercise every three months to raise money for another charity.
Select from the poll below who you would like to be the next charity to raise money for!
You can find out more about each individual charity below:
Glossop Mountain Rescue
Provide a rescue service in the Peak District National Park. GMRT deal with incidents both on the hills and within the community of Glossopdale. We are a self-funding team of volunteers offering a vital service to those needing our help in the hills and surrounding area.
GlossopDale Furniture Project
The Glossopdale Furniture Project is a registered charity based in Glossop, supported by Derbyshire County Council, High Peak Borough Council, Foundation Derbyshire and various Charitable Trusts. Covering the whole of the High Peak area it was set up in 1997 when it became obvious of the serious need for a charitable project of this nature. Those it helps are referrals from social services, housing charities, women’s refuges and many other local organisations who support individuals and families in need. During 2019-2020 the Project supported over 150 households by providing free Emergency Packs of furniture and everyday essentials to those who have been homeless and given a new tenancy where the property has none of the necessary items. Depending on need, a basic pack can consist of a bed, sofa, chest of drawers, wardrobe, fridge, bedding, crockery, microwave, kettle and toaster to help set up their new home.
Partington Players Theatre
The Partington Players – Glossop’s own live theatre. Established in 1954 as Glossop Repertory Company, and in 1957 moving to the present address – the old Liberal Club, skilfully converted into a charming and intimate venue of 120 seats.
