Charities join up for appeal.

THE Co-operative in Wales has announced a partnership with charities Oxfam Cymru and Dolen Cymru, through which it aims to raise at least pounds 50,000 to support co-operative projects in Wales and in Africa.

Co-operative and Dolen Cymru staff members and Oxfam chief executive Dame Barbara Stocking joined supporters to huddle around a huge honey pot at the Co-operative Food store in Crwys Road, Cardiff, to mark the launch - the aim will be to fill it to the brim by holding fundraising activities.

Dolen Cymru will support a fruit tree planting project in the Phelisanong Community, Lesotho, Africa, which enables disabled people and people affected by HIV/Aids to run an orchard, eat healthily and sell the surplus to continue profiting from the enterprise.
