The UK’s second largest independent co-operative, the Midcounties Co-operative, has chosen Help the Hospices as its Charity of the Year for 2009.
Employees will help fundraise for eleven local hospices in the Co-operative’s trading area, which includes Shropshire, Gloucestershire, Buckinghamshire and Worcestershire.
Fundraising activities will include a Spring Clean to encourage employees and customers to donate items to local hospice shops, a ‘Go Yellow’ month in June to mark the hospice colour and support for World Hospice and Palliative Care Day in October.
Midcounties Co-operative operates 650 businesses ranging from food stores, travel branches, and pharmacies, to childcare nurseries, car dealerships and post offices. Employees at all of them will be encouraged to participate in fundraising activities throughout the year.
