Help Raise funds for WSDCS with the Co-op Local Community Fund

05 March 2018


As you know we were proud to announce that West Scotland Deaf Children's Society had been chosen as recipients for the Co-op Local Community Fund. The funding round began on 12 November and will run for 11 months until the 27 October 2018.

We are delighted to let you all know that we will receive £1,185.53 from the first round of Co-op funding This is an amazing sum and we are extremely grateful to everyone who is supporting us! Please remember, every time a Co-op member shops and chooses selected Co-op branded products both the member and the community benefit!

5% for the Co-op member: paid into membership account which can be spent next time you shop; or saved to spend whenever you want.


1% for your community - 1% of what members spend goes to the Co-op Local Community Fund and you can choose where this money goes from a number of local causes. Members will be able to choose and give their 1% as of now until the 27th October 2018. The more you shop, the more raised for the charity. We will also receive, along with the other causes in our community, an equal share of the money raised from sales of carrier bags.

We are also lucky enough to be supported by two local stores - Union Street & Sauchiehall Street, who will on top of the funds raised by other stores be championing the causes of WSDCS, Bobath and Street Pastors. Look out for them at future WSDCS events as they will be coming along to lend their support!

This is a wonderful opportunity for us to raise much needed funds and we would ask you all to support us. So please:

if you're already a Co-op member, go online and click on West Scotland Deaf Children's Society as your chosen charity:


if you're not already a member then please join and encourage all of your family, friends and colleagues to do so too. It only costs £1.00 to become a member and you will quickly recoup that from your 5% savings.

Please help us raise as much money as possible to enable us to continue to provide support to all deaf children and their families throughout the West of Scotland.
