Wow – we’ve received a total of £4,141.01 through the Co-operative Community Fund, which will go straight towards helping those of our neighbours most in need. Thank you to everyone that chose us as their cause, all at the Ocean Way Co-op Store and Sheila Elsey (Co-op Member Pioneer) for your support!
The Co-operative give 1% of what members spend on Co-op branded food products in our stores and selected services, as well as money raised from sales of carrier bags and Co-op scratch cards in stores, to local projects – from improving community spaces or helping school leavers learn life skills, to simply connecting people.
So just by buying a pint of milk from one of their stores, you could help make things better in your community. Members can sign in to see the causes their local Co-op is supporting and choose which one they want their own money to go to.
Thank you again Ocean Way Co-op for choosing us as one of your causes for 2018. We are so grateful!
