This is the statement on the Co-op website about how you can support local causes:-
When you buy selected Co-op products and services, 2p for every £1 spent goes into your membership account. And we'll split the same between like-minded organisations and local causes.
You can select a local cause you would like to support.
If you do not select a cause to support, we'll share the funds you raised equally between the 3 causes in your community.
We give you a new set of causes to choose from every October.
You can change the cause you support at any time.
The three local causes selected for the current round of funding are
We would like to provide equipment and kit for football training/development for children/teenagers in Audlem and surrounding areas.
Our new dementia support group has already proved invaluable in providing respite and peer-to-peer support for people in our rural area. We aim to ensure we can continue this much-needed service.
We want to buy resources and equipment to educate our children on our carbon footprint, whilst continuing to focus on 'growing our own', with outdoor education benefitting pupils health and wellbeing.
