Co-op chooses its charity of the year for 2020

IoM branch of Samaritans to benefit

The Manx Co-op has selected the local branch of Samaritans as its charity of the year for 2020

As part of the partnership, all 10 Co-op food stores in the Island will have Samaritans collection boxes on display in-store to raise funds for the charity.

In addition, staff from will offer further support by organising fundraising events such as raffles and quizzes, to coincide with key dates in the Samaritans’ 2020 calendar.

There is also the opportunity for the charity to apply for 'The Big Co-op Payout'.

This is an initiative where one per cent of what Co-op members spend on selected branded products and services goes to local causes through its Local Community Fund.
