Better Lives Partnership have been chosen to benefit from the next round of the Co-op Local Community Fund.
The Co-op Local Community Fund helps pay for local projects that Co-op members care about.
Every time a member shop at Co-op, 1% of what they spend on selected own-branded products and services goes to help fund community projects where they live.
All money raised from shopping bag sales to the causes, to help even more.
The funding round will open on 27 October 2019 and close on 24 October 2020.
