We're delighted to have heard today that, along with 4000 community groups across the UK, Timperley Hockey Club shared an amazing £19m raised by Co-op members choosing local causes every time they shop at the Co-op. This shows just how the pennies and 1% contributions add up !
A huge thank you to all our members, parents, friends and family who chose Timperley HC as their local cause - and / or used their Co-op membership card every time they shopped at local Co-op Stores - you've helped to raise an amazing £3,250.82 for THC over the last 12 months.
We applied to be a Co-op local cause to help fund our on going investment in our volunteers from young leaders, to coaches, parent manager and umpires - and everyone involved in making community sport happen on a weekly basis. The funds raised help pay for courses. training, first aid, safeguarding, coaching, umpiring and young leader development too.
We're delighted to have been given over £3,250 to be able to continue to support and develop our volunteers for the coming season and put co-operative values of self help and self responsibility into action. A huge thanks also to Caroline Small our hockey development co-ordinator who puts the hard work in behind the scenes to help develop our #GrowOurOwnVolunteers , Nisha Sathi for her ongoing support for all our parent managers, Steph Ashworth our Child Welfare Office and Nick Burnett for helping develop our new umpires.
There will be thank you at the the local Timperley Co-op on Saturday 24th November for THC and our members to say thank you to the Co-op members who have supported us. So if anyone can pop by the Co-op in their Timperley Togs on 24th November it would be great. Tim and Perley will hopefully be out too and we'll share details nearer the time.
If you Choose THC as your local cause you can now go on line on your Co-op Membership Account and select a new local cause.
Thank you once again to everyone who choose Timperley Hockey and / or shopped at the Co-op and contributed to raising funds for local causes like us.
