Our Co-op Exec's #2days2fundraise challenge

they're taking on challenges for our Charity Partnership

What would you say if your boss was on hand to make you unlimited brews, wash your car, or pack your weekly 'big shop' shopping?

This is what we have the pleasure of enjoying over the next 2 days!

Some of our Co-op Exec team including our Funeralcare Managing Director, Richard Lancaster, are doing the ‪#‎2days2fundraise‬ challenge, where they're taking up a series of challenges to help raise money for our Charity Partnership - tackling loneliness with the British Red Cross.

The team have started off this morning in the kitchens at our Central Support office in Manchester, taking colleagues' hot drink orders (Richard's pictured here in action) and providing the goods to us give us our morning caffeine boost, along with a biscuit for good measure.

They've since darted off in 'Elvis', our new insurance specialist vehicle, to continue their adventures and fundraising in Carlisle.

Over the next 2 days they'll be washing cars, hosting an afternoon tea, packing bags in our Food stores and volunteering in a British Red Cross store - with an added 'Bargain Hunt' challenge to find an item to auction off when they return to Manchester.

The challenge has already raised an amazing £2,245 so we're expecting BIG things. We'll keep you updated!
