DECV receives Co-op Funding!

We are extremely pleased to announce we have received funding from the Co-Op.  Saturday morning saw DECV Trustee Brian Walker pick up a cheque for £5,194.82 from Bolton Upon Dearne’s Co-Op store. The money has been raised by Co-Op members and has been raised for DECV to help with the running costs of the centre.  The award comes from Co-op members who take part in The Co-op Local Community Fund which is Co-ops way of giving back to their members and their communities.

The Dearne Electronic Community Village (DECV) is a charity based in the village of Thurnscoe,  experiencing high levels of disadvantage, they educate and empower people to take positive lead of their lives, through classes in ICT, employability skills and getting local residents back into Employment.

We are extremely pleased to announce we have received funding from the Co-Op.  Saturday morning saw DECV Trustee Brian Walker pick up a cheque for £3234.28 from Bolton Upon Dearne’s Co-Op store. The money has been raised by Co-Op members and has been raised for DECV to help with the running costs of the centre.  The money comes from Co-op members who take part in The Co-op Local Community Fund which is Co-ops way of giving back to their members and their communities.

Massive thanks to all at the Co-op and the wonderful customers!

HOW DO YOU BECOME A MEMBER?

You pay £1 to become a member and this buys you a share in Co-op, which gives you:

  • 5% back to spend next time when you buy Co-op products
  • a share of their profits if they do well
  • the right to vote on how they do business
  • 1% of what you spend on local causes near you

WHAT IS THE CO-OP LOCAL COMMUNITY FUND?

The £3234.28 has been raised by Co-op members who purchased selected products and services from Co-op Group businesses.  1% of what you spend on selected, Co-op own-brand products goes into your local community fund and the money raised by all the members in your community, together with money from shopping bag sales, helps to fund local projects in the area where you live.

Any money raised by members who don’t select a cause is added to the money raised from shopping bag sales and shared equally between the causes in their local area.
