Three good causes in the Burnham-On-Sea area have been given a financial boost this week by the Co-Op.

Burnham and Highbridge Sea Cadets has received £877.40, West Huntspill Under Fives Group received £868.87, and Burnham & Highbridge Choral Society Amount received £912.

Representatives from the three groups received their cheques during a presentation at Co-Op Funeralcare in Burnham’s Adam Street, as pictured here.

Huntspill Under 5s are using the money for outdoor play equipment; the Sea Cadets are putting the money towards a new fully-equipped canoe and other equipment; and the Choral Society will use the funds to put on events and concerts.

“When Co-Op members shop with us, 1% of what they spend on selected Co-Op products and services goes to support local causes through our local community fund,” explained a spokeswoman.

“Members can chose which local cause they want their 1% to go to. The big Co-Op pay out is our chance to thank our members for helping us to give back.”

“Our members have raised an amazing £17million for over 4,000 local causes.”

“Members also get 5% of what they spend on selected Co-Op branded products and services, back to spend off their next shop, or off the price of Funeralcare Services including pre-paid funeral plans.”

The Co-Op chooses new causes in the local community every 12 months.  To get involved in the next big Co-Op pay out, sign up to become a member for £1 and choose a local cause to support. Call 0800 0686 727 or see online
