Pay Out Celebration Day

Store Manager Dipen Thaker and his team held their annual Pay Out Day Celebration last weekend to highlight how the Co-op supports the local community and to distribute donations to charities chosen by Co-op members this year.

LEAH was one of three local causes selected.  “On behalf of all of us, we’d like to thank Co-op members and Dipen’s Local Community Teams for raising an amazing £3,530.58,” said Elaine Lovie of LEAH.  “We’re absolutely delighted.  This donation will help fund our free English language programmes of 1:1 tuition in the home and community classes for ethnic minority adults in the local area.”

The Co-op gives 1% of what members spend on Co-op branded food products in their stores and selected services to local projects.  If you would like to know more about raising funds for LEAH whilst shopping at the Coop, click here.
