Co-op Community Fund
Double kindness from Mablethorpe and Sutton-on-Sea Branches
Earlier this year our volunteer fund finder, Craig Day secured a place on the Co-op’s Community Giving Fund for me&dee charity. Craig, who is based in Burton-on-Trent, based his application for us on the 2019 funding of our memory boxes that are gifted to every family that took a memory holiday with us at our holiday homes in Mablethorpe.
The fantastic amount of money raised for the three nominated charities by people shopping at the two Co-op branches, it just goes to show what can be done as a community.
Craig was delighted to have been the one that applied, he said, “When you put an application forward you are never totally sure that the people who read it will get what it is you are passionate about, me&dee”.
He continued; “me&dee are totally self-funding so rely on people like me to find them funds from different funding streams, The Co-op are one of the best companies to support local charities and community schemes and I was over the moon to secure the funding for the memory boxes for 2019”.
me&dee’s share of the total raised between the two branches was £8,458.92 which is just fantastic, Maria Hanson MBE said, “We can’t thank the Co-op and their customers enough for their generosity, it’s great when corporate companies give back and the Co-op are one of the best at supporting local charities”.
It was a pleasure to visit both the Mablethorpe and Sutton-on-Sea branches to meet the staff and Managers who have promoted the Community Giving Fund to their customers and thank them for all their hard work over the year.
