The Lostock Hall food store and Bamber Bridge funeralcare branch will join forces to raise money over the next year for their Local Community Fund.

Each time CoOp members make a purchase, the brand will put 1% into the fund, which will be split by Lostock Hall Juniors Football Club, Walton-le-Dale Recreation Society and Cuerden Valley Park Trust.

CoOp picked these three causes as part of its focus on supporting community spaces, well-being and skill development in its 2022 community strategy.

Jacqueline Evans, member pioneer for Penwortham, Lostock Hall and Bamber Bridge, said: "Colleagues from FuneralCare and Food are so pleased to work with CoOp members to encourage them to choose the local cause they want their 1% reward from CoOp to go to. We appreciate how vital these funds are to support local community work."

The two branches collected more than £11,000 for previous local causes between November 2018 and last October. Staff will celebrate with in-store events on Saturday.
