Good news you can help fund our cause and even better… it’s simple and easy to do!

This year very luckily we have been chosen by both Co-op and Tesco’s to potentially receive some funding. 

BUT… we need your help if you shop at Local Co-op Maws Lane Branch or Tesco’s Extra in Ilkeston. 

Here’s how to help if you shop at Tesco’s Ilkeston:

Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its community funding scheme, which sees grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from the 5p bag levy – being awarded to local community projects.

Three groups in every Tesco region have been shortlisted to receive the cash award and shoppers are being invited to head along to Tesco stores to vote for who they think should take away the top grant.

Rumbletums is one of the groups on the shortlist.

Voting is open in stores throughout May and June. Customers will cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out in store each time they shop.

Here’s how to help if you shop at Co-op Maws Lane:

The latest round of Co-op Local Community Fund is now open, which means that our members can choose to give 1% of what they spend on Co-op branded products and services to your cause.

The funding for your cause will come from Co-op Members. We give 1% of everything our members spend on Co-op branded products and services to a local cause they choose – and they’ll be able to choose your cause from 9 April to 7 October 2017.

Every time our members buy Co‑op branded products and services, from buying a loaf of bread to planning a funeral, 1% of their spend goes to a local cause, like yours. For the 6 months you’re part of the fund the money builds up. Throughout the 6 months, members can choose which cause their contribution goes to.

Please head to the Co-op at Maws Lane to sign up to the Membership and start fundraising for us today!
