Co-op Member Pioneer

Coop pioneers awards

My name is Debbie and I am your Co-op ‘Member Pioneer’ for the Woodhouse Lane Food Store. I also represent our two local Funeral Care branches in Wigan and Pemberton.

As a Co-op ‘Member Pioneer’ my role is to build and develop connections between members of the Co-op, local community groups and colleagues within the store. I am working with the store managers and their teams to support Local Causes (chosen by Co-op members), local community groups and charities. My aim is to strengthen those relationships and encourage feedback from community groups, and Co-op Members on what is important to them in their local community.

I look forward to hearing from you and local communities on what your thoughts are in terms of what’s happening in the area, and supporting your needs wherever possible. Together we can look to develop a local community plan of activities that will bring local groups, Co-op members and the local store even closer together. Feel free to catch me if I’m around in store for a chat or email me on [email protected] to find out more about my role. You can also visit my Facebook site: 2

Did you know that by choosing Co-op branded products and services, members of the Co-op have helped raise an amazing £17 million across the country in 2019 for Local Causes. That means we’ve been able to help fund thousands of local projects that benefit communities across the UK.
