A big Thank You to
We are pleased to advise you all that the Co-op Local Community Fund is now open for members to choose and give their 1% spend to White Spire School. This funding period is from now until 27 October 2018.
Every time members shop at the Co-op, 1% of what they spend on selected own-brand products and services goes to the Co-op Local Community Fund. We want to replace our trim trail with any funding we receive.
Co-op will also give White Spire School an equal share of the money it raises from sales of carrier bags. Members in our local community can choose White Spire School as their chosen cause and give your 1% from now.
The more you shop, the more the Co-op shares – it’s simple!
It costs £1 to become a Co-op member. This buys you a share in the Co-op, which gives you 5% back to spend next time when you buy Co-op products amongst other benefits. You can find out about Co-op membership in-store or online at Coop Membership
For those who are already members please log in to your account and select White Spire School As your chosen charity Now!!
