Revolver World Joins The Co-Operative’s “Co-Operate App”
Today (Tuesday 19th June 2012) saw the launch of the ‘Co-Operate App’ which offers exclusive discounts to customers at The Co-Operative. The app which was pioneered by Co-operatives UK as part of its work to promote Co-Operatives during the International Year Of Co-Operatives, is for iPhone, iPad and Android users in the run up to Co-operatives Fortnight 2012. The app includes listings of co-operatives throughout the UK, case studies, events and co-operative news and GPS feature which allows users to locate their nearest co-operative stores!
In addition the app also includes “Challenges” taking place between June 2012 and July 2013, where users can check in during certain events in the calender and in various different categories (e.g Sport, Learning, Money, Eating and Drinking, etc), to co-operative related entities.
When check in targets are met for each challenge, exclusive rewards and vouchers are to be released to devices who took part in the challenge. Top tip, keep and eye out for challenges starting during the 2012 Olympic Games!
The aim of “Co-operate” is to raise awareness of Co-Operatives:
“To help users better understand co-operatives, the way they work and benefits”
Make sure you check out this incredibly handy app which is now available for download at www.uk.coop/cooperate.

2012 – The International Year Of Co-Operatives
With 2012 now well and truly under way, we are hugely excited for the year ahead about our participation in the International Year of Co-operatives.
For those not already aware:
2012 has been recognised as the International Year of Co-operatives by the United Nations. This is an acknowledgement by the international community that co-operatives drive the economy, respond to social change, are resilient to the global economic crisis and are serious, successful businesses creating jobs in all sectors.
The campaign aims to raise awareness about co-operatives and their contributions to the socio-economic development, promote the formation and growth of co-operatives and to encourage governments to establish laws and regulations to related to the formation, growth and stability of co-operatives.
The 12th January 2012, marked the Midcounties official launch day for the year of co-operatives with celebrations taking place across various Midcounties Co-operative stores in the UK in the regions of Oxfordshire, Swindon, Gloucestershire and Worcestershire, as well as at the the Midcountries Warwick headquarters. Some 5,450 balloons were launched at these events to represent the number of Co-operative organisations in the UK.
Revolver World looks forward to being part of the International Year Of Co-operatives.
Revolver partners with Co-op supergroup to release Mencap charity single
Revolver World has worked with the Co-operative for a while — our coffee is in Midcounties Co-operatives around the country — now we are giving back to the co-operative movement. We’re working with a ‘co-operative supergroup’ of individuals who all work at The Co-operative Group’s Manchester headquarters, helping them to release a charity single this Christmas in aid of Mencap through our sister company, indie record label Revolver Records.
We visited the group at their final recording session in Manchester last month; pictured above is our MD Paul Birch with the group’s drummer… No less than Co-op Group Chief Executive Peter Marks!
We’re delighted to be working with Co-op Group on this charity single – all proceeds will benefit Mencap and we’re also making a donation on the single’s release day. More details will be published next week; keep watching the Revolver World web site, Facebook and Twitter feed for details!
