Member Anastasia outside St Hilda's Community Centre

Last week we shared the first of a series of films to help and encourage members to go online and choose who they want to pledge their 1% to. Here’s the second film – Anastasia’s story.

We’ve produced a series of short films to help and encourage members to go online and choose who they want to pledge their 1% to. We’ll be sharing them with you over the next few weeks. Store manager Dave Palin, who works in our Hoole Road store in Birkenhead, has a starring role in the first film. Here he shares his experience.

Diane Hagen has worked for our Co-op for 35 years. Here she talks about why it’s important to keep talking to customers about the difference the 1% is making to local causes in our communities.

Being a Co-op is about our members and colleagues having a say in how we’re run. This is your opportunity to shape how we do things through our campaigning and in the community.

Our Director of Community and Campaigns is coming up to his first anniversary at the Co-op. He talks to Rachel Machin about how crucial the ‘four C’s’ are to our success: community, communication, co-operatives and campaigning.

Without Co-op and its generous members and customers, we just couldn’t rescue and re-home so many abandoned dogs.
