Big Co-Op clean to "sweep" into
THE Big Co-op Clean is set to "sweep" into Southport,
on Thursday, 30 June 2016, as part of a community campaign to tackle litter and
improve the local environment together.
Forming part of a national campaign, colleagues from:- The Co-op, the Southport
Co-op Local Forum and Salvation Army, have joined forces and are encouraging the
community to help to make a difference locally by arriving at the Salvation Army
centre on Shakespeare Street, at 9:30am and taking part.
The Southport litter pick is taking place during Co-operative Fortnight, which
this year runs until 2 July 2016 to highlight the benefits of co-operation.
Frank Hanley, Member Pioneer at the Co-op Local Forum in Southport, said:-
"As a community retailer the Co-op is committed to making a positive
difference to local life. The Big Co-op Clean is a chance for members,
customers, local organisations and groups and, the community as a whole to come
together to improve the local environment for the benefit of everyone; and the
more people that join in, the bigger the difference we can make.
The Big Co-op Clean is also a way of demonstrating how co-ops are different to
other types of business. Because they are owned by their members local issues
and concerns are more of a priority; that's just one of the reasons why the
Southport community is co-operating to tackle local litter together."
