Co-op cheer for Carlisle Mencap
Both online and in store Co-op customers and staff have provided a welcome boost to Carlisle Mencap funds!
Posted Wednesday, 29th December 2021
A HUGE thank-you to everyone who helped contribute to our year as one of the three chosen charities in the Co-op’s Local Community Fund – we raised a marvelous total of £1,448.24!
And customers and staff at the 'flagship' store during our year as a chosen charity - the Co-op store in Central Avenue, Harraby, Carlisle - raised £37.95 through a collection tin on the tills.
The £1,448.24 has been raised thanks to Co-op members who did their shopping at local Co-op stores as well as using the Co-op’s funeral services between October 23 2020 and October 23 this year. Rest assured the money will be to very good use helping the many children and adults with learning disabilities and their families across Cumbria.
In fact, with Covid-19 having devastated fundraising initiatives, not for our charity but for many others, this money from the Co-op Local Community Fund is even more vital to our cause.
