Christmas shopping at Co-op boosts us!

By shopping at the Co-op this Christmas you have the chance to raise much-needed funds for Carlisle Mencap!

Posted Wednesday, 9th December 2020

Carlisle Mencap is delighted to have been chosen once again as one of the three local good causes by Co-op's Local Fund.

So, by shopping at any Co-op store between now and October 23 next year, you can provide a really big boost to Carlisle Mencap funds - especially as the Covid-19 crisis shows no signs of disappearing. 

You have to be a Co-op member to help donate - but don't worry if are not a member. Because it costs just £1 to join! And you can join by going to or by downloading the Co-op app.

The more members who select Carlisle Mencap and shop at the Co-op, the more vital funds will be raised! So what are you waiting for? Why not get a lot of your Christmas goodies from your local Co-op store - and raise funds for us at the same time!

Carlisle Mencap has its own Cause Profile Page on the Co-op membership website which will highlight the project (s) we are raising funds for. The link to our profile page is:

The Co-op store chosen to promote Carlisle Mencap is the one at Central Avenue, Harraby, Carlisle, but you can help raise funds at any of Co-op's stores and funeral parlours.

So please shop at the Co-op whenever you can - and please join the Co-op too. With uncertainty over Covid-19 and other fundraising avenues blocked off, this will be a vital source of much-needed funds. Thank you!


THANK YOU for your support ...
