On Sunday (7th July), Brendan Cole, of Strictly Come Dancing, joined 3, 000 Co-operative customers, members and staff at The Co-operative Family Fun Day at Chester Racecourse.
Cole, who is an ambassador for The Co-operative’s Activate Sport programme passed on his dance tips in a dance masterclass as well as trying his hand at cooking in The Co-operative Kitchen with chef Jill Weatherburn and trying some of the many other free activities available on the day.
Symon Garner, The Co-operative’s Membership Officer for Cheshire said: “It was a great day and we were delighted that Brendan came along to join in the fun at our Family Fun Day.
“The Co-operative is a familiar name in communities throughout the north west and the Family Fun Day provided an opportunity for us to give something back to our customers, members and staff and to thank them for their support.”
Activities included cooking demonstrations, fun sport skills sessions (Stoke City FC, Activate Sport, Warrington Wolves and bowling), live music, animal mascot dance off and the opportunity to meet Chester Zoo, The Woodland trust, RSPB and lots more.
