Community Champions Large

From scout groups and sports clubs to schools and support groups, there’s all kinds of different good causes that we’ve supported over the past few months.

We helped more than 160 local groups through our Community Champions scheme during September, October and November.

Each time a member shopped in a Lincolnshire Co-op outlet, a donation was made through the scheme. Staff fundraising and the carrier bag levy also went into the pot.

Here’s more about the fundraising and support that took place...
