The Co-op's Axminster stores had a busy year supporting local causes.

Store managers, their teams and and local community liaison Member Pioneer Jacqueline Hughes were delighted to hand out £5, 400 to three local charities and causes supported by the stores.

The money went to Project Food, The Community Shed and NoToyLeftBehind.

For every £1 a Co-op member spends on selected items, 2p goes to their local cause and 2p goes in to their own pocket!
