This year we have become one of Co-Op’s local causes. This means that if you are a Co-Op member, Co-Op will donate 1 % of your spend to local causes like Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer. Read on to find out how you can help us…
What is Co-op local causes?
Co-op local causes is an initiative that allows Co-op members to donate 1% of their spend on selected products in local stores to charities like Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer.
I shop at Co-Op but I’m not a Co-Op member – how can I join?
It’s easy, just go into a Co-Op store and ask a member of staff, or sign up online.
I’m a member – how can I make Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer my local cause?
When you have a Co-Op membership you’re able to log in to the members-only part of their website. When you’ve signed in you can see the causes that your local Co-Op is supporting. You can then select Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer as your cause to ensure that’s where your money goes when you shop at a local store. You can sign in and select Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer as your cause here.

Does everything I buy at Co-Op allow money to be donated to the local causes?
The 1% donations are given when you buy Co-op branded food. Money is also raised from carrier bag profits and Co-Op scratch cards.
What will you be purchasing with the money raised through the Co-Op donations?
The money we raise will go towards our community choir to provide weekly professional singing lessons so that breast cancer patients in the area can escape their worries.
Co-op local causes is a great idea and I want to spread the word. How can I go about it?
