Our new membership launched in September 2016. This is how it's doing so far:
Earned to date
for local causes
of our food turnover from our members
We describe active members as people who regularly trade with any of our core businesses within the last 12 months.
Our core businesses are Food, Electrical, Funeralcare, Insurance and Legal Services.
New members are those who have bought their £1 share and registered.
Rewards earned to date
This excludes earnings on temporary cards that haven't yet been registered.
Community total not exactly 20% of member earnings due to rounding - reward is rounded down to the nearest penny except when below 1p when we round up to award a minimum of 1p.
A further £15.0 million from sales of our carrier bags has also been given to local causes.
The amount raised and given to local causes has been generated from the 1% our members earn for local causes when they buy selected Co-op branded products and services from selected Co-op Group businesses, proceeds from the carrier bag levy and profits from the sale of our reusable bags. 1% not available in independent societies including Midcounties, Central England, Southern or Chelmsford Star co-operatives. Exclusions and restrictions apply.
