Community Things

What does the Village Co-op do for it’s local community besides selling food?

The Coop Retail Trading group annually hosts a gala charity dinner which helps raise money for many local communities. In 2019 we nominated
We aim to provide a totally free, but professional, voluntary service, out of normal working hours for the transportation of Urgent and Emergency items, e.g. blood, platelets, samples, donor breast milk, patient notes, theatre equipment, in fact anything that can be carried by motorcycle, solely for the benefit of the publicly funded emergency services and the patients being treated by them, within the NHS Hospitals.
We will provide this service through the night, and 24 hours per day at weekends and Bank Holidays, to the best of our ability, enabling hospital funding to be better spent on patient care. A very valuable community service. Thank You.

The Coop Board of Directors would like to say thank you to all the people who gave so generously to the food bank basket at the Coop. We are able to send a regular donation to the Ulverston food station. Please keep giving
