Dividend for communities

Have your say

community groups are being encouraged to apply for grants from a retailer for environmental projects in their neighbourhood.

Payments are being offered to organisations in the Chesterfield area through Midlands Co-operative’s ‘Making a Difference’ Community Dividend scheme which guarantees that at least one per cent of the society’s trading profit is put back into the community.

The scheme has already donated over £1 million to local neighbourhood causes, with over 30 groups benefiting in Chesterfield.
