This is how our scheme works:
Local community groups and charities can apply at any time, with all applications assessed once every three months. The successful applicants will be allocated a selection of funeral branches in which they will be supported.
Every three months we share £2,500 between good causes across our region, with the opportunity of receiving £1,250, £750 or £500.
Throughout 2018 and 2019, the three monthly periods will run as follows:
1st November 2018 – 31st January 2019
1st February 2019 – 30th April 2019
1st May 2019 – 31st July 2019
1st August 2019 – 31st October 2019
If you are not successful the first time don’t worry. Your application will be held on file for 12 months and will automatically be considered for another three month period. After 12 months you will be required to re-apply.
Due to the large volume of applications we receive, we unfortunately may not be able to support all who apply. You will only be contacted if you have been successful.
You, or your group, must be an East of England Co-op member to apply. You can join online or in-store. Our Community Share Account application can be found here.
