Generous support from local people
COPA has continued to receive generous donations from individuals and groups in Guernsey. In 2007 the new Performing Arts Centre was opened at the College of Further Education and a collection for COPA took place at one of their first performances. St Sampson's Infant School has also kindly given COPA a donation during 2007, as well as maintaining their sponsorship for individual students. The Flag Day in December 2006 also raised £600.
During 2007 Rodney Benjamin (COPA Guernsey committee member) has been able to procure a fantastic donation of £14,000 which will enable other local schools to benefit from COPA expertise by way of advice on teaching methods, resources and general advice and support. This is an exciting project and one which will reach out to a wider number of children.
