The Co-op Local Community Fund for the group
- 13 November 2018
We have been luck to be chosen for the fund raising award we applied for earlier this year and read the following how this will work for us...
Welcome to the Co-op Local Community Fund
The Co-op Local Community Fund helps to support local projects that our members care about. Since its launch in 2017, Co-op members have raised £39 million pounds for over 12,000 local causes. We’re delighted that Wimbledon and District Diabetes UK Group will now be able to access this funding opportunity.
How the fund works
Every time our members shop at the Co-op, 1% of what they spend on Co-op branded products and services helps fund community projects. Members can shop at any Co-op Group stores across the UK to raise money for your cause.
Members can choose which causes to support by signing into their membership account or by calling the membership helpline on 0800 023 4708. Your cause will be available for members to select until November 2019.
Your cause will receive two payments as part of the Local Community Fund. The first payment will be in June 2019 and the last payment in November 2019.
Your cause profile page
Every cause has a page on our membership website. This includes information about your cause and the project you want to complete. To encourage members to support your project, share the following link on social media:
Your local stores
We ask colleagues in your community to help promote your involvement in the fund and support your cause for the next 12 months.
You will be invited into stores in early January 2019 to meet colleagues but feel free to pop in sooner and say hello. The stores in your community
