Shop at Co-op to help Carlisle Mencap!

By shopping at the Co-op between now and October 23 you can help boost Carlisle Mencap's funds. Read on to find out more!

Posted Tuesday, 5th January 2021

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 the 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 ...
