Time 2 Give - Help us to make a difference this Autumn

Posted by Jo Baldock | 25/08/2016 | Category: Community

Staff at Central England Co-operative have 'Time 2 Give', specifically three days a year to volunteer and whilst we have loads of energy and enthusiasm to make a real difference, sometimes finding the right opportunities can be harder than you would think.

This Autumn, we are going “Back to School” and we’d really appreciate your help to make our volunteering events a fantastic success. If you have a contact at a school or college near to one of our shops or funeral homes (which you can check here), and you think we can support them by giving some time, we would like to know.

Whether the school needs some gardening or decorating TLC, classroom support with a specific subject, project or display or even some specialist skills in PR, marketing, social media or creative design, please email us and we might be able to help.

Education is key to the co-operative values and principles and we already play an important role in delivering educational workshops to local schools, such as, Healthy Choices, Fairtrade events and ethical challenges. We also offer opportunities to come in to store and learn more about Central England Co-operative, take part in work experience and gain employability skills. 

This is a great opportunity to support our wonderful schools in a different way and meet some future co-operators!

Please email responsible.business@centralengland.coop with your suggestions.
