We all know how important greenspaces are for creating stronger and healthier communities, giving children space to play and access to nature.

This is your chance to raise the profile of an issue that we all care passionately about and to generate money for local greenspaces across the UK. The Co-operative is asking their staff and members to vote www.co-operative.coop/charityvote by 12 July on a cause to support over the next two years.

Together with Groundwork UK, greenspace scotland and Fields in Trust are championing greenspaces across the UK so our children and communities can continue to access nature, parks and community greenspaces. If we win, we will fundraise and campaign with the Co-operative to support hundreds of projects across the UK, protecting and improving these precious community spaces and mobilising thousands of people to make their neighbourhoods better places to live.

Please spread the word and help outdoor spaces win!

Even if you aren't a Co-op member yourself, around 1 in 9 people are, so you probably know more than one. So please share with friends, family and colleagues so their vote  can help save outdoor spaces and change lives in their neighbourhoods.
