CONCERT LEFT THEM HUNGARY FOR MORE SEE PAGE 15 Southern Co- operative invites charities to apply for support through neighbourhood scheme
Charities applying for a fundraising partnership need to demonstrate how they support one of these categories.
Once a local cause has been chosen through a colleague vote, The Southern Co- operative’s Funeralcare colleagues, customers and members across Farnborough, Ash Vale and Fleet will begin fundraising for the charity.
Southern Co- operative have engaged in a variety of sponsored activities for charity, including sky dives, abseils, runs, and weight loss challenges.
Jessica Hughes, communications and community engagement manager for The Southern Co- operative, said: “The Southern Cooperative is run by local people, for local people, and after consulting with over 4,000 members and colleagues about our community engagement, we have developed our new localised Love Your Neighbourhood community scheme.
“Love Your Neighbourhood focuses our community activity on benefiting the communities we serve at a much more local level and gives all stores, funeral homes and other areas of our business the opportunity to choose their own fundraising partner.”
As part of the Love Your Neighbourhood programme, all of The Southern Co- operative Food stores and Funeralcare homes across the south will be on the hunt for a local fundraising partner in the near future.
To apply, collect an application form from a Southern Co- operative food store or visit www. thesoutherncooperative. co. uk/ makingadifference/ local- partnerships.
