Community Cares Fund
In April, we set up the East of England Co-op Community Cares Fund to support community groups and charities to provide much needed services to local people.
To kick start the fund we donated over £230,000. This was quickly added to by our generous members who donated almost £140,000 from their dividend.
The total fund stands at nearly £370,000.
We’ve donated over £250,000 so far to groups and charities who are looking to adapt and create services to support local people in our focus areas of young people’s mental health and wellbeing, food poverty, reducing food waste and supporting our ageing population.
