The Southern Co-operative is looking for a New Charity Partner in the Solent!
The Southern Co-operative’s head office and neighbouring convenience store at 1000 Lakeside, Portsmouth are looking for a charity partner based in the Solent to fundraise for throughout 2016/17.
As part of The Southern Co-operative’s new ‘Love Your Neighbourhood’ community scheme, the business is encouraging charities, community groups and good causes to apply before 31stJuly to become their official Lakeside fundraising partner.
Jessica Hughes, Communications and Community Engagement Manager for The Southern Co-operative said: “The Southern Co-operative 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.”
Love Your Neighbourhood will address four key themes, promoting: ‘Greener Neighbourhoods’, ‘More Inclusive Neighbourhoods’, ‘Safer Neighbourhoods’ and ‘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 Lakeside colleagues, customers and members will begin fundraising for the charity. Previously, colleagues have engaged in a variety of different sponsored activities for charity including sky dives, abseils, runs, weight loss challenges and much more!
