The ‘Co-op Way’ to success

Posted on April 23, 2017 - Fundraising, News

 

The funding period for our project here at Home-Start Wirral, ended on 8 April 2017.

We have been awarded an amazing total of £1,946.30 that can be used towards creating a stimulating new soft play area, for children with disabilities.

Home-Start Wirral is one of more than 4,000 causes across the UK who have benefitted from the Local Community Fund, continuing to make a real difference in their local communities.

This funding comes from Co-op members and customers, a big ‘Home-Start Wirral’ thank you to everyone that has made our involvement such a successful one.

Pop up Charity Shop

Posted on March 11, 2017 - Fundraising, News

 

Home-Start Wirral are always looking for new opportunities to raise funds to continue their important work supporting Wirral families.

We have an opportunity to run a ‘pop up’ charity shop at 29 Seaview Road, Wallasey, CH45 4QN. We have the premises and the stock, but we are short of enough volunteers to make the most of this opportunity.

You don’t have to be a current Home-Start volunteer, so please get in touch if you think you could help.

Please call The Hub 0151 608 8288 or email saraforfar@homestartwirral.co.uk if you can help.

There are various times and different ways you could help between Thursday 16th March and Monday 20th March depending on your commitments.

The ‘Home-Start Wirral Hub’ has been selected to receive funding from the Co-op Local Community Fund. It means that we will get a contribution towards helping us to provide crucial early support for young children with a disability with funding for a new soft play area for them to enjoy. But we need your help! The more support we get, the more funding we could receive. So if you’re a Co-op Member log in to your Co-op Membership account by clicking here, and choose us. If you’re not a member, please join and support us!

How the fund works for you and the Home-Start Wirral Hub.

Every time you as a Co-op member, buys Co-op branded products and services, from buying a loaf of bread to planning a funeral, 5% of what you spend goes into your Co-op Membership account, which you can spend immediately or save for later.

In addition,  the Co-op gives 1% of what you spend on its products to community projects selected by a Co-op store near your home. You can choose which cause your own 1% goes to. If you don’t, it is shared out between the causes of your nearest Co-op.

New causes are chosen every 6 months, the Home-Start Wirral Hub is registered as a cause until 18th March 2017.
