Rewarding Good Eggs this Easter with Central England Co-op
Central England Co-op is rewarding those who have been a ‘Good Egg’ this Easter, with a bag full of delicious Co-op Easter treats. As a co-operative, the Society is giving out a little Easter cheer to those who do good things in the communities around their food stores, funeral homes and travel branches.
The retailer is hoping to promote community spirit and give a little back to people who help out in their communities. Colleagues from the society actively volunteer on behalf of good causes, give out financial awards via their Community Dividend Fund, and run Member and Community Councils who donate funds to deserving causes.
The Society is asking staff in stores and funeral homes to gift these Good Egg bags to those in their communities who deserve recognition for their efforts to help others.
Throughout the Easter period, stores and homes will have Good Egg bags at the ready to reward community heroes and people who go out of their way to do the right thing for others.
Central England Co-op has created a film that shows the great work Co-op colleagues do in their communities as well as to inspire people to get out there and make a difference where they can over the Easter season. The film can be found on www.centralenglandcooperative.coop/beingcoopy , and at the @mycoopfood twitter handle.
Caroline Maddox, Engagement and PR Manager at Central England Co-op said: “We presented community heroes with golden stockings at Christmas, and when it came to Easter we knew there were so many more people that deserved to be recognised. We know these good eggs will more than likely not nominate themselves, so we thought we would do it for them.”
