We're delighted to report that donations through the Co-op Local Community Fund have reached £1,000.  

The Co-op Local Community Fund enables Co-op members to vote for a local cause to receive 1% of profits on  products in store. Worcestershire Young Carers have been chosen to benefit from the funding, which officially launched in January and runs until November 2020.

Jon Cawdron, WYC Team Leader, said: "We've had an incredible response in such a short space of time. Our local Co-ops at Ombersley (Claines), Ombersley Road and Barker Street in Worcester, have been so supportive and we're really grateful to them and to all of the Co-op members who are choosing us as their cause. With the money raised we'll be able to provide more activities for our young carers, giving them a well deserved break from their caring role."

If you would like to support Worcestershire Young Carers through the Co-op, please see our local cause page: https://membership.coop.co.uk/causes/38105
