Thank you Midcounties Co-operative!

We are thrilled to announce the fantastic news that The Midcounties Co-operative Forest of Dean Regional Community have chosen to support GDA as their charity partner for the next 12 months. Three charities were shortlisted with members voting either online or instore for their chosen charity with GDA receiving the most votes. With 8 food stores, 2 travel agents, 200 colleagues and 50,000 customers a week this partnership is incredible news for our charity, both in terms of fundraising but also awareness raising of the support available that GDA offers deaf and hard of hearing adults and children across the county.

“We are absolutely delighted for our members and colleagues to have chosen GDA as our charity partner. The charity does such incredible and important work, and all of the colleagues are excited to be raising money for such a great cause. We have already planned our Dalmatian Day for GDA in stores and a marathon walk for later this year and look forward to raising awareness as well as funds”. Chris Chandler, Forest of Dean Regional Community Ambassador at The Midcounties Co-operative.

“This partnership means so much to GDA and we are over the moon to have been chosen by members. We are so excited to partner with The Midcounties Forest of Dean Regional Community and have already been blown away by the passion and ideas for fundraising which have started already. It was a pleasure to welcome some of the Store Managers to GDA for a tour of our centre in Barnwood. Thank you so much to everyone who voted for us!” Sally Gillespie, Fundraising Manager at GDA.
