Dividend bonus 2021
There's a theme that stands out in everything we've achieved this year - collaboration. By working together, we're in a unique position to help bring about positive change locally because we're so connected to our communities.
We've had a positive trading year, meaning we're able to share our profits with our local members. At the recent Annual Members' Meetings, members approved a dividend bonus of 85p for every £1 of dividend you have already received.
This year we're sharing £3.5m of dividend, including a bonus of £1.6m, helping to boost the local economy.
Your dividend bonus will be available to spend from Monday 13th December 2021 as full or part payment in any of our stores using your dividend card, key fob and mobile app.

*Your dividend bonus is based on the amount of dividend you received between 6th September 2020 – 4th September 2021, not your current dividend balance. If you have selected to donate the odd pence to local good causes, we’ve deducted this automatically. If you haven’t previously contributed your £1 member’s share, this has been deducted from your extra dividend amount.
