We're delighted that despite tough trading conditions, our members have voted to distribute a dividend this year. Dividend will be landing on our members' doormats from late June to late July 2022.
If members have spent over £210* in store last year, you may be eligible for dividend. We have distributed the dividend for our 2021/2022 financial year. Dividend was distributed based on qualifying spend made between 24th January 2021 and 22nd January 2022.
*on qualifying spend
Three ways to use your dividend in 2022
If you’d like to keep your dividend so that you can spend it in store, you don’t need to do anything. Just pop to your Co-op with your cheques and spend them.
If you’d like to deposit your dividend into your share account, put the dividend cheques you wish to deposit in the pre-paid envelope provided and pop them in the post – we’ll take care of the rest. It couldn’t be easier.
Please allow some time for this to be processed, we'll confirm when this is ready for withdrawal if you choose to do so. You can find out how to withdraw funds after we've notified you here.
During the pandemic, we created the East of England Community Cares Fund to provide much needed support to local organisations helping those most in need in our community. Thanks to our members, in the last year we've donated more than £200,000 to help over 80,000 in Norfolk, Suffok and Essex.
If you would like to donate some or all of your dividend, simply tick the ‘donate’ box on the back of your cheque and return it to us in the pre-paid envelope provided. DON’T FORGET to tick the box on the reverse of the cheque. If you do not tick the box, your donation will not be registered and your cheque will be deposited to your share account instead.
