The money is raised by members when they buy selected own-brand products and services.

Members can also choose the local cause they would like to support through their membership.

Rebecca Birkbeck, director of community and member participation at Co-op said: "We know that the cost-of-living crisis is making it incredibly challenging for many local causes.

"Our Local Community Fund promotes the development of stronger, more resilient, and fairer communities.

"Our community groups and local organisations are providing valuable services and support to people at a time when they need it most."
