Our fundraising partnerships are a very important part of the work of our Regional Communities, but as these partnerships end, we know it is the right thing to continue to have a relationship and work with these important local stakeholders, away from fundraising on a mutually beneficial basis.
Together we will continue to work to support each other to maximise opportunities, for both the group by means of supporting their events with volunteers, promoting awareness locally of their work and in turn the group will engage in our Society events such as Your Co-op Conversations, AGM, Half Year meetings and to also promote the benefits of membership of Your Co-op.
