A cluster of Co-op stores, in Northampton, have raised an amazing £4,535 through their membership scheme. BAs you can see Lucy collected the cheque. Thomas’s Fund has also now been chosen for the next round of funding over at Kettering so we still need Co-op customers in that area to choose us too!

Here’s how the Local Community Fund scheme works: 1% for your community As a member, every time you shop at Co-op, 1% of what you spend on own brand products and services goes to the Co-op Local Community Fund.

Co-op members have already earned over £9 million for over 4,000 local causes. This money, along with money raised from carrier bag sales, is used to support local projects that benefit the community close to where you live.
