The Community Champions scheme is one of the ways that Lincolnshire Co-op shares its profits. Every time a member shops at an outlet using their dividend card, a donation goes to the chosen champion at that time. Money from the carrier bag levy and fundraising activities will also go directly to the chosen Champions.

In recent months, £86,000 was raised for local health charities, Headway and Rethink Mental Illness, and over £80,000 for local wildlife trusts.

Lincolnshire Co-op Community Engagement Manager Sam Turner said: “Our Community Champions scheme is a fantastic way to raise a lot of money for some really worthwhile causes.

“We know there are plenty of groups out there that fit the criteria for this quarter, so we’d love to hear from green space projects who would benefit from a fundraising boost of £5,000 to £10,000.

“Just fill out a form and you could be one of our Community Champions – simple!”
