Community champions

Community Champions is Lincolnshire Co-op’s way of sharing our profits with the community

As we’re owned by our members, we want to put them firmly in the driving seat, giving them the power to help their local community.

Every time a member shops with us using their dividend card, a donation will go to a nominated local charity or community group in their area. The beauty of Community Champions is that the more members spend, the more each local group receives.

During the three month period that Champions are nominated for, they can expect to raise around £200 - £2,000 but the sky’s the limit. Community Champions first launched in March 2013 and in the first year members helped us raise over £192,000 for 311 nominated local charities and good causes simply by shopping with us.

As part of Community Champions, members also have the option of choosing to support a charity or community group of their choice from our central list. Charities or community groups who join our central
list will receive the total amount raised by members who support them at the end of each year.

We now charge customers 5p for single use carrier bags following changes in the law. Proceeds will be added to our Community Champions pot - so for every single use carrier bag sold, the current nominated Community Champion in that area will benefit.


Choose your champion

By default the charity or community group you support when you shop with us using your dividend card is linked to your local store. This charity or group changes every 3 months.

We'd like to say a BIG thank you to our members who have helped us raise a total of £85,263 for all of the nominated Champions from December 2015 to March 2016.
