Free fruit is back!


After the success of last year, we’re bringing free fruit back for junior members! What better way for your little monkeys to cool down on a hot summers day than with an crunchy Gala apple or brilliant banana?

From Saturday 21st July to Saturday 1st September 2018, we are going totally bananas and giving all our junior members a FREE piece of fruit every day from our food stores – making this an cherrific summer!   

To claim all this yummy free fruit, juniors need a fruitastic card.  These are being sent out week beginning 16th July to all current juniors who have been members prior to 4th July 2018 - so keep an eye out for a special delivery!

If a junior has signed up after the 4th July 2018 and not ticked the postal communications box on the application form they will not automatically receive a fruitastic card.  To change this, please contact our Membership Team on 01522 543 632 (Monday to Friday 8:30am – 5pm) or email as soon as possible.

Once they have their fruitastic card in their hands, all they have to do is pop into their nearest Lincolnshire Co-op food store, pick either a Gala apple or a banana and show their card at the till.  You’ll be able to spot our bonkers bananas and awesome apples easily when you’re in store!

Make sure they keep their card after it’s scanned and they can come back the next day for another slice of the action.

Not a junior member?  Anyone aged 5 – 15 can become a member for free – they can apply now at and we’ll send a fruitastic card to them – don’t forget to tick the box to receive information from us by post and email so we can send out the fruitastic card and other cool stuff like birthday and Christmas treats, competitions, events and offers for activities and great days out.

Once they’ve signed up we’ll send out their fruitastic card within 14 days – they’ll need to wait for this to arrive before they can collect their free fruit. So, don’t wait too long, apply today and make the most of this cherrific free fruit!
