Vote for charities to get shopping support


Voting is open to choose which local community groups will be supported by shoppers in Lincolnshire Co-op outlets later this year.

Lincolnshire Co-op dividend card holders are linked to a local good cause through the Society’s Community Champions scheme – each time a member shops with their card in an outlet, a donation is made to that group. Staff fundraising and proceeds from carrier bag charges are also totalled up. 

During the year, hundreds of different groups are supported through the Community Champions scheme. Currently members are choosing which will receive help during autumn 2018.

The lucky organisations which are selected as Community Champions for September, October and November could raise around £500 or more.

People can vote for which good causes they’d like to support through Lincolnshire Co-op’s website if they have an online membership account set up - go to the My Membership section.

Or they can attend a series of special members’ forums being held throughout the area in March.  

As well as the Community Champions vote, the forums will include updates on Lincolnshire Co-op news in the local area and a chance to quiz managers and Society directors through a Q&A session.

The events take place from 6pm at the following venues and locations:

• Monday 5th March - Centre 4, 17a Wootton Road, Grimsby, DN33 1HE.
• Wednesday 7th March - St Nicholas Community Centre, Fishtoft Road, Boston, PE21 0AA.
