Friends of Hoylake and Meols in Bloom
We are delighted once again to have been selected to receive funding from the Co-op Local Community Fund. This means that if people vote for our project we will get a contribution towards it, depending on the level of support. But we need your help. The more support we get, the more funding we could receive. So if you're a Co-op Member please log in to your Co-op Membership account and choose us. If you're not a Co-oP member, please join and support us! (Details below)
How the Co-op Community Fund works
Every time Co-op members choose Co-op branded products and services and use their Co-op Membership card (subject to Membership T&Cs) 1% of what you spend will go to your chosen cause and 5% to the card holder.
Members can choose which project they would like to support and can change their choice at any time until the end of this community fund period, which is 7th October2017.
If members don't choose a cause during the community fund period then their 1% is shared out equally between all the local causes in their community and the card holder still gets the 5% back.
When you are a member you can keep an eye on how much is being raised in your Co-op Membership account or you can visit your local Co-op Food store and check for updates.
Not a Co-op member, you can join at coop.co.uk/membership
We hope you will support our project but for any reason you choose not to, there are two other great projects you can choosefrom below:
Melrose Hall, Hoylake
The project is to to upgrade the heating and decorations in the small hall to ensure the comfort of users.
About the project:-
To use the small hall on a regular basis we need an upgrade on the Heating and decorations for the activities currently undertaken to ensure the comfort of the users. When we have sufficient funds we will carry out the work. This will benefit all the community who use the hall and enable us to offer the hall to more groups. All the people organising the running of the hall are volunteers.
The UTS Foundation
The project is to offer free exercise sessions to those experiencing cancer to improve health and well-being whilst combatting post cancer fatigue.
About the project:-
We will offer free bespoke 8 x 6 week training programmes tailored to meet the needs of each individual/group of cancer patients. This will improve patients overall health and well being, create a positive supportive environment to remove barriers that prevent people from cancer getting the help and support they need, reduce isolation that patients face, improve mental health issues (anxiety and depression), alleviate demand on NHS services struggling to cope with overwhelming demand of 12,000 Wirral cancer patients, local flagship organisation that will enhance local pride and build stronger, healthier communities by working in partnership with NHS and Macmillan and other local organisations to build stronger communities and create community identity, resilience with issues they face.
Each year the Friends of Hoylake and Meols in Bloom need to raise funds to provide the vibrant flower displays seen throughout our towns. I think most people agree that they significantly brighten up Hoylake and Meols, give the area a looked after feeling and generally have an uplifting effect.
Each year we try and choose the best plants that will provide a colourful and long lasting display. What funds we have has a great influence on this especially as some years we have to replace all the soil/compost. Having the Co-op community fund support is of great assistance in achieving the best displays possible.
Please support our project to help keep Hoylake and Meols SMILING for many years to come
