Keep it fairandfunky when you shop at the Co-op!

Have you heard the news?! We are thrilled to have been selected as a local community cause from the Holmfirth Co-operative store for our work with young people around climate action! And the BIG NEWS is when you head here: you can choose us as your local cause WHEREVER YOU LIVE!

The Co-op Local Community Fund has supported over 30,000 local community projects across the UK since its launch in 2016, giving opportunity for greater capacity of charities and organisations, who play a vital role in the wellbeing of communities. The premise of the fund is very simple – when Co-operative members buy selected Co-op branded products and services and use their blue Co-op membership card at the checkout, 1p from every pound spent goes to support local causes. What are you waiting for? Head here: to start giving at no extra cost to you!

As you can imagine, the last few years have been really challenging for small organisations such as ours. The pandemic has drastically affected our work with young people, so we are extremely grateful to have this partnership with our local Co-op. We’re urging everyone we know to choose fairandfunky as their cause (and you can here: so we can deliver our climate action project and work with more young people in the Holme Valley and surrounding areas. We will focus on creating opportunities for young people to be heard and make a difference, matching one of The Co-op’s core themes for the funding. We will engage and empower participants with the knowledge that they can have a positive impact on people and planet, by establishing a festival with green activities aimed at young people.

Rebecca Birkbeck, Director of Community and Member Participation at Co-op said “Co-op is committed to making a real and tangible difference in our local communities, while creating significant value for Members through our Membership scheme. Our Local Community Fund is more relevant than ever as the cost-of-living crisis is making it incredibly challenging for many local organisations. We know that our members want to support the communities they live in, and Co-op membership is a powerful way for people to do this, simply by shopping at Co-op.”

We are already benefiting from being chosen as a community cause and will do until October 2024, which means you have 12 months to show your support, just by using your membership card when you shop! So please head here: and select us; it will make a huge difference to our work.
