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.
Project Food were able to offer cookery courses and support to the local community.
The Community Shed were able to teach young adults from Axe Valley Academy and provide their own valuable woodworking skills to the community.
NoToyLeftBehind were able to run children's workshops and biodiversity forums.
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!
Co-op Membership helps support Co-op's national charity partners and Local Community Fund causes. See www.coop.co.uk/membership.
All money from carrier bag sales also goes to local causes.
