Choose The Ambler as your Co-op cause

Posted on 30th November 2017 | in Community

The Ambler Community Newspaper has been chosen for the next round of the Co-op Local Community Fund. The funding will run until 27 October 2018.

How it works:
Every time a member shops 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 Ambler and other causes in our community will also receive an equal share of the money raised from sales of carrier bags. Members will be able to choose The Ambler and give their 1% to support the local community newspaper.

So the more you shop at the Co-op, the more we benefit.

Previous beneficiaries have been: Amble Code Club, Amble Youth Project, Amble Cadets, St Mark’s Church and Community Sports Development (Boys’ Club).

This year the two local beneficiaries will be The Ambler and Hauxley Wildlife Discovery Centre.

If you know of a group who you think would also benefit, you can nominate them for the next round of the Co-op Local Community Fund.

To help direct funding to The Ambler, go to the Co-op’s membership webpage to select your cause. You need to enter your membership number to make your wishes known.

If you are not already a member of the Co-op, you can join here.

We thank the Co-op and the people of Amble for this opportunity.
