Our charity partner British Red Cross has been shortlisted to become the Co-operative Group’s 2015/16 charity partner.
They are through to the final vote stage and if successful will be able to raise millions of pounds to help tackle loneliness in communities across the UK, supporting thousands of people who have no-one else to turn to.
Because FareShare is partnering with the Co-op and British Red Cross on a number of initiatives, we would also benefit from additional funding to expand our reach and feed thousands more vulnerable people up and down the country, who might be at risk of loneliness and isolation.
Vote for BRC
With just one vote, you will be supporting two charities and thousands of vulnerable people.
Voting is open to all Co-operative members and employees between 22 June and 12 July 2015.
If you’re not a Co-op member but want to be, you can sign up here and then vote!
Spread the word
If you know someone who is a Co-op member, or who works at the Co-op, please urge them to vote for us. Chances are that you will know someone who can help – around 1 in 9 people are Co-op members.
Spread the message as widely as possible amongst your friends, family and colleagues, and help support more lonely people.
