Support for community groups

Web Page

Since the Community Champions scheme launched in 2013, we’ve helped a wide range of local groups and charities to make life better in their communities.

The Community Champions scheme is just one of the ways that we share our profits with the community. Every time a member shops at one of our branches using their dividend card, a donation is made through the scheme. Proceeds from the carrier bag levy and fundraising by colleagues also go into the pot.

How do I become a Community Champion? 

Applications are currently closed, keep your eyes peeled for the latest news! 

During the last community quarter in Autumn 2018, a whopping £109,713 was raised for local groups. To find the full list of groups we helped in the last community quarter click here.

Alford Primary School used our donation to create a mud hut and kitchen for the children to enjoy!

What type of groups do we support?

We fundraise for different causes every three months - it can be good causes tackling a local topical or social need, health groups, environmental groups and local community groups and good causes.   

If you want to know who your latest Community Champion is then you can look on your till receipt, on the stand in your local branch or find out more here.

Holding a fundraiser and looking for a raffle prize?

As well as Community Champions we also offer support with fundraising by donating raffle prizes or refreshments. If you have fundraising event coming up, then please take a letter in to your local food store to ask for help.
