Celebration at Broad Lane Co-op.

Countdown to Celebration Day

You may be aware that Portreath SLSC Graduate Lifeguard project is one of three local causes to benefit from the CO-OPs current Local Community Fund. It looks like we will receive between £700 and £800 to purchase relevant equipment.

The Broad Lane CO-OP Branch are planning a celebration day on 25th November and would like some or all of our Graduate Lifeguards to attend in their uniforms for Photos, cheque presentation, cake cutting etc. They can take flyers etc to promote the club.

It would be excellent for the club to attend to say thank you but also as the Manager told me that we have been put forward again by his store for the next round.

There’s only a month to go until we celebrate the latest payout of the Local Community Fund on Saturday 25 November. This is the perfect time to show how your cause is helping to make a difference in your community.


If you can attend the celebration day on 25 November, just contact your local food store so you can start planning the day. To help you with ideas, check out this handy guide which gives hints and tips on how to engage with our members and customers, as well as making the most of social media.


Exciting news


We’ll be making a big announcement and we wanted to share our exciting news with you first. Co-op Members will have helped raise an amazing £20 million since September 2016, which has supported over 8,000 local causes.


Celebration day will be a great opportunity to thank our members for choosing to support your cause. We hope you have a great celebration day and we look forward to seeing your photos and social media posts.


Thank you,


The Local Community Fund Team
