Help your local community
Every time you buy selected Co-op products from Co-op food stores and other Co-op businesses, they give 1% of what you spend to local causes near you. Love Norbury is now officially a Co-op local cause.
Co‑op Members have helped raise an amazing £20 million for local causes. That means the Co-op have been able to help fund thousands of local projects that benefit communities across the UK.
This is where Love Norbury needs your help…
If you are already a Co-op member Love Norbury would love it if you could nominate Love Norbury as your chosen cause. This means that every time you shop at the Co-op, 1% of what you spend on Co-op branded products will go to Love Norbury and will be spent on local community events.
