Helping our communities

Helping Communities

As a co-operative and a truly local business we strongly believe in supporting the local community and the people within it. 

We run a scheme called Community Champions which links each of our members to a local good cause. Around £200,000 is shared out between those groups each year.

We also work to support education by delivering different lessons and information sessions in schools around our trading area. 

Every year, our members pick a charity for us to support and our colleagues organise lots of fundraising events. Our staff each get two paid volunteering days each year so they can help out on community projects.

Our colleagues are keen to make a difference in their local communities –that’s why we offer each one of our 2,800 staff the chance spend two days per year doing paid volunteering.

Supporting Education

Education and training is important to us at Lincolnshire Co-op - in fact, it's one of the seven co-operative

principles that we follow.

Charitable Support Policy

Charitable support policy

As a local co-operative business, supporting the local charities and good causes in the areas where we trade is fundamental to our mission to be a successful co-operative. We help to support hundreds of local charities, community groups and projects each year.



As well as the well-known outlets like food stores, pharmacies and post offices the Society also runs three libraries.

All of the libraries are supported by teams of dedicated volunteers from the local area.
