Please support Hopezone through shopping at the Co-op

Our local Co-op has been supporting HopeZone for the past few weeks and so far the current total for the collection at the Co-op, including money from sales of carrier bags that was added at the start, is £628.

The more members that support HopeZone and shop at Co-op, the more money they'll receive.

How to support: 

  • You can apply to become a member of Co-op
  • Choose HopeZone as the Local Community Fund 

If you already have a Co-op membership log on to your account at and select HopeZone for six months.

How the fund works

  • Every time our 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, like HopeZone.
  • For the 6 months HopeZone is part of the fund the money builds up. Throughout the 6 months, members can choose which cause their contribution goes to.
  • If members don't choose a cause during the 6 months we'll share the contribution they've built up equally between the causes in their community.
