Have your say

Generous Central England Co-operative customers have raised over £200,000 to support two good causes by donating unwanted clothing.

Figures have revealed that 1,413 tonnes of clothing have been left at collection points at over 100 food stores across 16 different counties.

These donations were then sold and the money raised shared between the Salvation Army and the society’s corporate charity Newlife, the charity for disabled children.
