BEACON is very pleased to have been chosen as one of the Co-op’s Local Community Fund causes for the next six months. During this time, Co-op members can choose which of their local causes to support, and obviously we hope that you will support BEACON.
Every time Co-op members buy Co‑op branded products and services, from buying a loaf of bread to planning a funeral, 1% of their spend goes to a local cause. For the six months that BEACON is part of the fund, the money builds up. Throughout the six months, members can choose which cause their contribution goes to.
BEACON is slowly building up its fund, which will be used to support the work of our River Rangers, and extend this scheme into other areas of the Bollin catchment. We will be able to use the funds to train up volunteers, provide equipment to carry out simple water tests, speak to landowners about land management where there are problems identified, and also provide some Project Officer support.
