Since September 2016, Co-op has raised a phenomenal £20 million! It’s easy to understand why we are so excited to be part of this wonderful initiative.
There are two ways that the Co-op Local Community Fund raises money:
- Every time members shop at the Co-op, 1% of what they spend on selected own-brand products and services goes to the Co-op Local Community Fund. Co-op members in the local community can choose which charity receives their share.
- All the local causes in the community get an equal share of the money the Co-op raises from the sales of carrier bags.
To ensure that we make the most of this fantastic opportunity, we need as many of our supporters, their friends and family as possible to select Sandpiper Wildcat Cardiac Responders as their chosen charity. By doing this you’ll be helping us to save lives.
Simply login online if you’re already a member or if you’re not, sign up at https://www.coop.co.uk/membership. It’s quick and easy. If you are more than 15 miles from our registered Peterculter Co-op, we won’t appear as a suggested cause but there is a search facility so that members can choose us wherever they live.
To help spread the word further, please consider sharing your nomination socially. You will be given the opportunity to post your support once you’ve chosen Sandpiper Wildcat Cardiac Responders.
We will be sharing updates right up until the 27th October, but members can also see a running total of how much they have helped raise every time they login to the Co-op community page.
