Today’s a proud day for our Co-op. We’re announcing the total amount of money raised through our Local Community Fund, the 1% members give when they buy our own-brand products and services.
We’ve added together the two rounds of funding to show the massive difference your 1% is making to 8,000 local causes across the UK.
We’re telling people about the £20 million everywhere – point of sale in Food stores, till screens, posters in funeral homes, adverts in newspapers and magazines, on websites, social media, big outdoor screens.
We want everyone to know that this is what the Co-op does – this is #TheCoopWay.
I want to say a big thank you for making this happen. It’s because of you that members know and understand how being a member of our Co-op can achieve incredible things – and give back in such a way to the communities we serve.
I also wanted to say thank you for what I know will be a brilliant day on Saturday and throughout the following week when Funeralcare celebrate with local causes.
Celebration day on 25 November is an opportunity for us all to come together – colleagues, local causes, and members – and enjoy something we’ve achieved as a whole Co-op.
If you’re a colleague that doesn’t work in a food store or funeral home, please pop into your own local store to support your colleagues – they’d really appreciate it.
Share your stories
Make sure you get on social media and share your photos and stories throughout the day using #TheCoopWay.
We’ll all be shouting loud and proud about our Co-op difference and the difference we’re making to local communities.
And keep buying own-brand in our stores, and choosing our products and services in Funeralcare, Legal Services and Electrical.
That way we’ll continue to give back millions to the local causes who need it most.
