Thanks to our new Co-op membership rewards we now have an incredible £9m to give back to local communities across the UK. That money will help 4,000 local causes make great things happen. What an amazing achievement.
To celebrate, on 19 April we’re bringing colleagues, local causes and members together in store.
Make sure you pop into your local Co-op store on that day, and share in the celebrations.
Telling the nation about our Co-op
Our first pay-out to local causes is proof that we really are a better way of doing business for you and your communities. So now’s the moment to invite the nation to ‘Join us’. We’re broadcasting our new national ad for the first time over the Easter weekend but I wanted you to see it today.
The ad ‘Great things happen when we work together’ features real life examples of 13 local causes filmed by BAFTA award-winning director Shane Meadows and the inspiring description of the Co-op by spoken word performer George the Poet.
Take a look. It made me feel proud when I first watched it. I think it will make you feel proud too.
