We're a Co-op local cause!

We are delighted to announce that the Warlingham School Educational Trust has been selected for the next round of funding from the Co-op Local Community Fund, which runs for 11 months until the 27 October 2018.  This will provide the school with funds that we can use for the benefit of all of our students. 

Some of you will be aware that we have a new exterior canopy area with seating for our students funded by the Warlingham Educational Trust.  The Co-op funds will be used to develop a sensory garden to go alongside the new outdoor seating area.

There are two ways that the Co-op Local Community Fund raises money:

  1. Every time members shop at the Co-op, 1% of what they spend on selected own-brand products and services goes to the Co-op Local Community Fund.  Co-op members in the local community can choose which local cause receives their share. 
  2. All the local causes in the community get an equal share of the money the Co-op raises from the sales of carrier bags.

We urge everyone to support Warlingham School by making the Warlingham Educational Trust their Co-op local cause.  It would also be appreciated if you could ask your friends and family if they would also support us. 

Those of you who are members of the Co-op can immediately make us your local cause by simply signing into your online account and choosing to back the Warlingham School Educational Trust.  We won’t come up as a suggested cause for those who don’t live near to the school, but there is a search facility so that members can choose us wherever they live. 

If you’re not already a member and would like to join, all you need to do is go to https://www.coop.co.uk/membership and choose ‘Become a Member’.  Then, once you’ve joined, simply select us as your local cause.

We recognise the power of social media so if you do decide to select us as your local cause, we hope that you will share that on Facebook and/or Twitter.  There is a button for you to be able to do this, once you’ve selected your cause.

We will give updates on how much money we’re raising in our newsletters.
