Local groups share £57k

From pre-school tots to youth groups and luncheon clubs, our members have raised an enormous £57,190 for more than 80 local good causes in the past three months.

The Community Champions scheme sees every one of the Society’s 250,000 members linked to a good cause close to where they live.

Every time they use their Dividend Card in any Lincolnshire Co-op outlets where dividend is issued, a donation from the Community Champions pot goes towards their local good cause.

Member Engagement Manager Richard Whittaker said: “This is a fantastic total for a great number of local groups and we hope it will help them with their many projects and events.“Once again we say a big thank you to our members for continuing to shop and raise funds for groups in their communities – it wouldn’t work without them!”

Members of local groups and organisations who need money to put towards a project can apply for their group to become a Community Champion. An application form is available to pick up in store or access here

Stores have now begun raising money for a different set of local groups, customers can look for displays in store or check the bottom of their till receipt to see who they’re supporting.

The total awarded to local groups this time was boosted by proceeds from the sale of single-use carrier bags since 5th October
