Co-op members earn 5% for themselves and 1% for their local cause when they buy Co-op own-brand products. The local cause funds have been building up since we launched our new membership in September and have reached approximately £9 million.
Six months on, we’re now starting to pay that £9 million to the 4000 local causes over the UK.
To celebrate, we worked with director Shane Meadows to show some of the projects our members have been supporting. Here’s his film.
Thank you to our members for helping us make a difference to your local communities. Like George the Poet says in the opening line of the film, “Great things happen when we work together.”
If you haven’t already, join us and become a Co-op member.
