WAITROSE shoppers select BCA for £469 Community Award
Protect and preserve Buxton’s unique heritage and landscapes.
A huge thank you to Olive Middleton for putting BCA forward for a community award.
We received almost 50% of the available green tokens and a cheque for £469. Olive was asked by Dan Hopkinson, Manager at Waitrose, to write a few words to help customers to make their community choice and she did us proud.
“Buxton Civic Association is a charity that was established in 1968 and its principal role is to protect and preserve Buxton’s unique and wonderful heritage of fine architecture and its natural and formal landscape settings, for the benefit of the local community and visitors to the area.
The association is responsible for the upkeep and management of over 200 acres of prime woodland around the town and also purchased Poole’s Cavern in the nineteen seventies. The association requires funds to be able to carry on with the great work that they do and are also in the process of producing a booklet to chart their history.”
