Co-Op Community Green Token Scheme

We are delighted that our application to take part in the East of England Co-op Green Token Scheme has been accepted!

7039 - Token Scheme Voting Poster A4

Collection boxes will be appearing in stores around Colchester on 01 May and will run for three months until the end of July.

The following stores are supporting us:

  • Mersea Road
  • Wimpole Road
  • Abbots Road
  • Old Heath
  • Harwich Road
  • Greenstead
  • Wivenhoe
  • Rowhedge

Every time a member shops at the Co-op, they’ll be given a token to put into the collection box of their choice. More tokens in our box means a bigger share of the £1000 for us.

It’s a great way to raise awareness for the charity and some funds in the process. Encourage your friends and family to get on board.

A message from Click and Jump
As of 11 April our governing body The British Parachute Association have introduced two forms (above) to replace the original tandem fitness form.  The 40+ age limit has been removed for mandatory medicals for tandem jumpers and your ability to take part in a tandem jump is now solely based on your medical history.

The following information supersedes the age restriction information:

You should read the BPA Fitness form 115a as soon as possible – if having read all the statements you are unable to declare yourself fit to jump and sign this form, then you will need to take Form 115B to your doctor to be signed and bring this along with you on the day of your jump.

If you have already had the old BPA Form 115 signed by your doctor this form will be valid until the stated expiry date so there is no need to replace an existing form.
