Kindhearts cash in for ME sufferers

First published in News

PEOPLE suffering with ME have been given a £2,000 boost, thanks to kindhearted Co-op members The Bolton ME and CFS Support Group will now organise weekly yoga sessions for its members with the cash, which has been raised by The Co-operative’s Community Fund.

This is a pot of money accumulated by member customers opting to donate all or part of their annual dividend to good causes in the area.

Hazel Remeika, The Co-operative’s membership manager for the North West, said: “We are particularly proud of the Community Fund, as it demonstrates how the generosity of our members can make a real difference in their local area, and now we have stores and branches in every postal area of the UK it makes it all the more relevant.” Co-operative members receive a payment twice a year based on the points they earn when they trade at any of the Co-op’s businesses.

Community Fund application forms are available online at or by phoning 0844 262 4001.
