Regular member and community events provide ample opportunities for entertainment and education, and members can also influence the way our Community Dividend fund is allocated to bring direct benefit to charities and good causes in their local area.
We organise and support events for members and non-members - such as regular trips to the museum dedicated to the Rochdale Pioneers.
We are also involved in running educational, interesting and fun activities for young people - often focusing on the principles of the Co-operative Movement. For instance, for our "ethical challenge" we invite local school children into our food stores to seek out responsibly sourced products like Fairtrade, in order to help them understand where their food comes from and what they can do to contribute to a better world for everyone.
