health­ier neigh­bour­hoods.

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.
