Brentor Commons Association has been chosen to benefit from the next year of the Co-op Local Community Fund. The funding started on 12 November 2017 and will run until the 27 October 2018.
How it works
Every time Co-op 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. The Co-op will also give the Brentor Commons Association (shared with two other local causes) a share of the money they raise from sales of carrier bags. Co-op shoppers who are Co-op members (ie have a membership card) must first choose the Commons Association as their cause for their 1% to go to them and not the other causes – to do this click here to go to the coop.co.uk/membership website.
The more you shop at the Co-op, the more the Commons Association will benefit.
This is very welcome news for the Commons Association – as Government funding for conservation work becomes more difficult to win this grant will fill some of the funding gap that they are experiencing for the maintenance of our local commons.
