Project Nova gets a wonderful New Year boost from Norfolk Co-op
Walking With The Wounded’s programme, Project Nova, which works to support veterans caught up in a cycle of anti-social and criminal activity to not re-offend, to regain their independence and to reintegrate into society, is being supported by local Co-op stores.
Members of eight Norwich-based Co-op funeral and food stores have made Walking With The Wounded one of their chosen charities. Every time members buy Co-op branded products and services, 1% of their spend goes to these chosen charities.
The Local Community Fund appeal, which has already raised £1136.88 for WWTW’s Project Nova, has now been extended to April 2017.
Co-op Community Representative Neil Vincent said: “New members receive a 5% reduction on selected products. Of that, 1% income is allocated to the charities they choose to support.”
He added: “WWTW was specifically picked by our members because of the fantastic work and support it gives vulnerable veterans in the local area. This fits in perfectly with our commitment to our community and is in line with true Co-op values.”
Walking With The Wounded Corporate Partnerships Manager, Kate McKeand said:“on behalf of the staff and the vulnerable veterans we support I’d like to thank Co-op members for their support. We look forward to our continued partnership”.
