Good causes in Congleton have the opportunity to submit applications to become a community group supported by shoppers at the town's Co-op store at 60 Bromley Road, Congleton .

The Co-op uses its branches across the country to help connect with people and projects in the area. The Co-op Local Community Fund was created to help provide support and funding to local causes.  

When you buy selected Co-op products and services, 2p for every £1 you spend goes into your Co-op Membership account. The Co-op will also give the same amount to support community organisations and local causes. 

Since 2016 Co-op members have helped raise £117 million which has been used to support around 7 million people across the UK. 

The Co-op is now calling community groups to apply for the next round of the Local Community Fund support, with applications open from today (Wednesday, 10 May).

They will be looking to support projects that:

  • Bring people together to access food
  • Help improve people's mental wellbeing
  • Create opportunities for young people to be heard and make a difference
  • Enable people to save and restore nature or tackle climate change

You can find more information and apply for the Co-op Local Community Fund here: Co-op (

The deadline for applications is midnight on 11 June.

Co-op Membership helps support Co-op's national charity partners and Local Community Fund causes. See

You can find details of previous Local Community Fund payouts via the Co-op noticeboard section of Penarth Nub News.
