How Shopping Can Help Cressex


We understand that budgets are really tight for our community of parents and pupils at the moment. They are tight for our school too; for all schools, in fact.

This is why we are asking all supporters of Cressex Community School to consider using one or more of the following fundraising schemes to help us raise some extra funds for the school.


As you know, we are a Co-operative School and, as such, we have been chosen to receive funding from the Co-op Local Community Fund. In October, we became a Co-op ‘cause’ (Cause ID: 70418) and this time next year we will receive a guaranteed £1,000.

So how can you help?

You can support us to add to that £1,000 and to raise more money, from now, for the next year.

If you are a Coop member, every time you shop at the Coop, or buy Coop insurance, or sign up for a Funeral plan, for every £1 you spend on selected Coop branded products or services, 2p goes into your membership account, and 1p of that goes to Cressex.

So, in order to support us, you’ll need to become a Coop member.
