The Co‑op Local Community Fund

How the fund works

Every time our 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 yours.

For the 6 months you’re part of the fund the money builds up. Throughout the 6 months, members can choose which cause their contribution goes to.

You’ll receive your funding at the end, if members don’t choose a cause during the 6 months we’ll share the contribution they’ve built up equally between the causes in their community.

Our school has been approved by the two local Coops (located on Pitshanger Lane) to receive funding every time parents/friends/colleagues spend money any Coop shop nationwide.

Here is what we need you to do….
