On the 23rd June 2018, The Friends of Shanklin Theatre helped raise money for the Local Co-op Causes Initiative at the Landguard Road store. All the money raised on the day was divided and donated to all three local causes: Daisy Chains IW Children’s Charity, Rylstone Chalet Restoration and the Friends of Shanklin Theatre to help restore and replace the listed historic windows.
Many thanks to everyone that came along and donated on the day, we can confirm that we raised an amazing £540!! Thank you to everyone that came and supported us on the day, it’s really appreciated. Thanks also to our loyal band of volunteers that helped out with leaflets, membership and supporting this great cause.
Our grand total so far donated by Co-op customers has now reached a staggering £1,890.00 and increasing all the time.
The Co-op gives back 1% of what you spend on all Co-op own brand products to community projects selected by Co‑op stores near your home.
You can choose which cause your own 1% goes to. If you don’t, it’s shared out between the causes of your nearest Co‑op.
New causes are chosen every 12 months.
