I’m Kristina, a Member Pioneer in Rochdale. Since April I’ve been doing what I love best – bringing people together in my local community – the birthplace of our Co-op.
On Saturday 25 November thousands of colleagues, members and customers will have the chance to come together and celebrate the local causes who’ve benefited from this round of Co-op’s Local Community Fund.
I used to work in a food store before going to university so I was lucky enough to be part of the last celebration day in April where £9m was paid out to 4,000 local causes.
So many colleagues across our Co-op worked hard to make that day an amazing success so I’m really looking forward to being part of this one – which will be even bigger and better.
How I’m getting involved
It’s brilliant that the business listened to colleagues and is holding the celebration day on a Saturday. It’s one of Co-op’s busiest days so I know there’ll be a buzz in store.
Working with my former colleagues we’ve already started thinking about what we’re going to do with our local cause, the Rochdale Pioneer Museum. We’ve invited them in and want everyone in the community to understand how we’re helping them and to showcase the great work they’re already doing.
I’d encourage everyone to keep Saturday 25 November free in their diary and pop down to your local store to celebrate. Colleagues in store would really appreciate your support.
I’ll be on social media telling everyone what we’re up to – make sure you are too!
See you in store.
