Community scene

On Saturday thousands of colleagues will be celebrating the £19m members have raised for local causes across the country through the latest round of our Local Community Fund.

It’s one of the most anticipated days of the year for colleagues because it shows the real difference our Co-op is making to thousands of people in the communities we serve.

I know that many Food and Funeralcare colleagues have been working together for months with local causes to create a real buzz in stores.

It would be fantastic if you could give a bit of your time to support your local store and join in the celebrations this Saturday.

Please share your stories on social media throughout the day using #TheCoopWay.

That way we can spread the message even further that our Co-op is different – that we care about the wellbeing of our communities and what matters most to them.

Choose your new cause

Also don’t forget to choose your cause for this new round of funding. I’m convinced we’ll be giving back an even bigger amount of money to local causes next celebration day.

Sign in to your membership account if you haven’t already chosen.
