The Co-op Local Community Fund helps pay for local projects that each branch members care about.
Every time our members shop at Co-op, 1% of what they spend on selected own-branded products and services goes to help fund community projects where they live.
We also give all money raised from shopping bag sales to our causes, to help even more
Each year the local Coop branches select new charities and projects to support .
The Whole Autism Family was lucky to be one of the three charities or projects chosen for the Mirfiled local co-op community fund in 2018.
We had the pleasure of attending two events, which was a great way of not only raising awareness of Autism within our local community, but also to thank the local community for their continued support .
The Mirfield Co-op raised an overwhelming amount for all 3 organisations . The funds have enabled us to invest into additional volunteer training , funding some new projects and family events .
Following the enormous success of last years partnership with Mirfield Co-op a staggering amount of £8918.60 was presented during a community celebration.
