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.

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.
