The Co-op together with its members are helping raise funds for our charity, raising almost £600 so far!
What is it for?
The purpose of this funding is for our “Evergreen Vintage Tea” meetings. This gives the elderly members of our community who have been brought up in a similar era a chance to get together and socialise. The meetings would be themed, with waiters/waitresses in vintage era uniforms, serving drinks, cakes and refreshments and a lovely classic atmosphere filling the room with memorabilia and music from times past.
So how does it work?
From 21 Sep 2016 until 17 Mar 2017 when a Co-op member uses their membership card on Co-op branded products and services 5% of their spend is paid into the member’s account and 1% of their spend goes towards the Local Community Fund. Members can choose online which local cause to support, visit the Co-op website to choose your local charity (that’s us!)
How can you get involved?
Co-op members get to choose their local cause – choose Evergreen Care Bexley! Or for more hands-on involvement which comes with its own rewards, become a Befriender with Evergreen. Our Befriending service is in highly sought after and we are seeking more volunteers for our charity. Please contact the office if you would like to know more, and perhaps come along to one of our meetings and experience the rewards this life-changing service offers. Call us today on 01322 431 765.
