Background to the scheme@
A Coop representative recently us during a Tuesday practice tea break to explain how we can raise funds for the Dalesmen Singers by purchasing Coop branded products.
If you want to help raise money for the Choir in this way and are not already a Coop member, just go to your local Coop and ask to speak to someone who can sign you up.
Once you are a member you need to register your card so that 1% of the value your purchases can then go to Dalesmen Singers (and a further 5% is put into your Coop membership account for you to spend next time). You can register either by phoning 0800 023 4708, or going online to
I have just done this and can see that at present £815.90 has been raised for the Dalesmen.
We shall be beneficiaries for the next six months so let’s see if we can raise a substantial amount.
P.S. If you buy a 5p bag when shopping, the 5p goes to the Dalesmen!
If you have any questions, ask me on a Tuesday night

Choir members please note: This is an easy way to raise money for the choir - perhaps friends and neighbours can be persuaded to help in this way too? (ed)
