The Co-op operates a Community Fund which automatically gives money to local charities. This is well worth supporting as Face Front has already raised more than £500 without even trying. We are a potential beneficiary for 12 months, ending October, so we want to encourage as many people as possible to sign up.
Anyone who is a Co-op member can nominate a local charity to receive 1% of what they spend on Co-op branded food products. ‘Local’ is relative – you can be 10 miles away from Edmonton Green and still support Face Front. If you don’t choose Face Front the 1% will just get distributed among all the local charities they are supporting.
It works like this:
• If you’re a member and shop at the Co-op (even some of the time), sign up through your members account – if you haven’t got an account you can set one up using your membership number on the back of your card. Sign in here.
• Once in your account you can choose a local charity to support
• The system allows you to choose how local is local – under 5 miles, 5-10 miles etc
Your choice will last for a year and Face Front will benefit whenever you buy Co-op products.
