Good causes across Twickenham have the opportunity to submit applications to become a community group supported by shoppers at the area's Co-op store.
The Co-op uses its branches across the country to help connect with people and projects in the area. The Co-op Community Fund was created to help provide support and funding to local causes.
When you buy selected Co-op products and services, 2p for every £1 you spend goes into your Co-op Membership account. The Co-op will also give the same amount to support community organisations and local causes.
Since 2016 Co-op members have helped raise £117 million which has been used to support around 7 million people across the UK.
The Co-op is now calling all community groups to apply for the next round of the Local Community Fund following the opening of applications on May 10th.
They will be looking to support projects that:
- Bring people together to access food
- Help improve people's mental wellbeing
- Create opportunities for young people to be heard and make a difference
- Enable people to save and restore nature or tackle climate change
You can find more information and apply for the Co-op Local Community Fund here: Co-op (coop.co.uk)
The deadline for applications is midnight on June 11.
Co-op Membership helps support Co-op's national charity partners and Local Community Fund causes. See www.coop.co.uk/membership
