National charity partnership

Charity Partnerships Image

The Coronavirus pandemic has had a huge impact on local communities, which is why Co-op colleagues are supporting on issues such as access to food and bereavement.

Our charity partnership with Mind, SAMH and Inspire is more important than ever right now, research from Mind shows that more than half of adults (60%) and over two thirds of young people (68%) said their mental health got worse/deteriorated during lockdown.

To support our charity partnership we’re asking you to get moving and fundraise for mental wellbeing.

Get moving and fundraise: 25 – 31 August

Raising Plenty in 2020 Image

Whilst we know colleagues fundraise all year round, there’ll be some weeks this year where we want colleagues to really up their fundraising efforts to support. From 25 - 31 August, we’re launching our next big fundraising week encouraging colleagues to ’get moving’ – one of the five ways to wellbeing.

Here you can download a fundraising guide, posters and other materials to help plan your fundraising activity:
