Co-op Local Community Fund – £2,750 raised for Good Neighbours
Since the ‘Back to being Co-op ‘membership relaunch in September 2016, 1% of everything local members spend on Co-op brand products has gone to local causes. The money is currently being shared between the three local causes that were voted for by local Co-op members in Chorlton and Whalley Range – including Chorlton Good Neighbours (CGN). The other local groups selected were Women Asylum Seekers Together and The Woodcraft Folk.
The great news is that total fund for CGN is currently £2754.76 and local Co-op members are adding to it every time they buy selected Co-op brand products from our stores and funeral homesT
Our 6 months will end in 3 weeks time. However, There’s still more than £5780.71 in the local community fund that members are yet to pledge to a particular cause. The more members that choose us, the larger our share of the final total which will go towards such things as keeping our exercise classes for older people going and to do all the work in the local community that we have now been doing for 50 years
