Donations of £250 were presented to two local good causes at an official opening ceremony for the new £1.2 million Goxhill Food Store.

Goxhill Parish Council received £250 after the ribbon was cut on Wednesday 15th February. The Council plans to use to buy benches for a community green space.

Goxhill Parish Councillor Mike Gathercole said: “We’re grateful for this fantastic donation which will help us complete a large garden project for residents in the village. The benches will provide a place for locals to sit back and enjoy the serenity of their surroundings.”

Current Community Champion Framework, a local homelessness charity, also benefitted from a £250 donation which will be added to the amount they receive from being chosen Champions.

The Community Champions scheme is one of the ways 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 which is currently homelessness charities. Money from the carrier bag levy and fundraising activities is also added to the pot.
