ECHO receives no government or NHS funding, and we rely entirely on the generosity of our donors to keep providing our services. Co-op’s support helps us towards our goal of getting every newly diagnosed child with a heart condition treated at Evelina London Children’s Hospital the support they need.
Under Co-op’s programme, ECHO receives 1% of what local Co-op Members spend on home-brand products if they select ECHO as their cause. If you’re in the area, please consider becoming a Co-op Member and shopping at their participating stores to help us raise the funds we need to continue supporting heart children and their families.
If you’re already a Co-op Member, you can assign ECHO as the beneficiary of the funds you raise by signing in to your Co-op Membership online account here or phoning them at 0800 023 4708. Funds that are not assigned to a cause are shared evenly between all the local charities selected in the programme.
We’re also looking for brand ambassadors: people who know ECHO – members, relatives of members, fundraisers, supporters – who would be confident in contacting the participating stores and working with them to engage their customers and make the most of this amazing opportunity. Send us an email or give us a call at 020 7998 4710 if you’d like to help!
