Co-op Supports Remus Horse Sanctuary
We mentioned back in October that we had been chosen for the next round of the Co-op Local Community Funding and we can see from the website that funds are already being raised!
What is the Co-op Local Community Fund
The Co-op Local Community Fund helps to support local projects that the Co-op members care about. Since its launch in 2017, Co-op members have raised £39 million pounds for over 12,000 local causes!
We’re absolutely delighted that Remus Horse Sanctuary will now be able to access this funding opportunity.
How the fund works
Every time a Co-op member shops at the Co-op, 1% of what they spend on Co-op branded products and services helps fund community projects. Members can shop at any Co-op Group stores across the UK to raise money for the cause – we understand its not just restricted to the local stores.
Members can choose which causes to support by signing into their membership account or by calling the membership helpline on 0800 023 4708. Our cause will be available for members to select until November 2019.
Every cause has a page on the Co-op membership website and ours is no exception! This includes information about our cause and the project we want to complete – in this instance we would like to buy some replacement field shelters costing £4,500 each, so our animals can shelter during sudden inclement weather – such as the gales, flooding and extreme heat that we’ve experience over the past few years.
