Co-op stores making a difference to local communities

More than £65,000 has been raised by co-operative colleagues and customers in Hampshire. Thousands of pounds will be shared between 62 separate charities and good causes  - including Clanfield Junior School with money raised by Clanfield Co-op store. 

Every year, each of Southern Co-op's local food stores choose a local partner which aims to create greener, safer, healthier or more inclusive neighbourhoods.

Southern Co-op's Love Your Neighbourhood programme also enables charities and local causes to apply for grants of up to £500 to help sow the seeds to a secure, stronger future for everyone. 

Holly Bramble‚Äč, Community Lead at the regional, independent co-operative, said: "Each of these local causes makes a difference in their local community. It is incredibly important to us, our colleagues and our members to make sure we support them in their efforts - whether that is a local school working to be more sustainable, or a charity which cares for people in need.

"So, we'd like to thank every shopper who put their pennies in the collection pots and every colleague who organised a fundraising activity. It's been a tough few years but it is wonderful to see people continuing to support each other where they can."

More than £4,500 was raised at seven stores for Chestnut Tree House - providing care for children and young people with life-limiting conditions in Sussex and South East Hampshire.
