We have been approved for a Co-op Local Community Fund. Every time Co-op members buy Co-op branded products and services, from buying a loaf of bread to planning a funeral, 1% of their spend goes to a local cause, like ours.
For the 6 months we’re part of the fund the money builds up. Throughout the 6 months, members can choose which cause their contribution goes to.
We’ll receive our funding at the end, if members don’t choose a cause during the 6 months the Co-op share the contribution they’ve built up equally between the causes in their community.
Any funds raised for us will be distributed shortly after the end of the giving period (March 2017).
We want our time with the Co-op Local Community Fund to be a huge success, so please look out for Co-op’s announcements to both local and national newspapers.
