Wow. Saturday was an amazing day for our Co-op. A day we all came together to celebrate the payout to 4,000 local causes – money raised by members when they buy our own-brand products and services. That makes an astonishing £20m we’ve raised in total since we re-launched membership.
Thank you to everyone involved – colleagues in stores, funeral homes, and colleagues from the rest of our businesses and support centres who went down to their local store to join in the celebrations.
Lots of time and energy went into making Saturday a success and I continue to be bowled over by the commitment and passion of you all.
The celebrations haven’t ended though. Throughout this week Funeralcare will be celebrating with local causes and members so look out for more events happening in your community.
Here’s a short video of what you all got up to on Saturday:
NOTE: we know you can’t watch videos in store. This is available on our YouTube channel (search ‘Co-op Colleagues’) for you to watch from any device.
We shouted loud and proud – #TheCoopWay
We made sure everyone knew about our brilliant achievement.
On social media we reached 7.3 million people with our campaign
We sent out 350 local press releases and used lots of photos from our store colleagues
Thanks to all those who went on social media to share their stories and sent photos to our PR team.
