The majority of Co-op stores have relatively expensive prices though; shopping at a more competitive supermarket could leave you with greater savings to donate.
agreed Sarah, although i find our local Co-ops reasonable on price, and i understand and take part in, 'CWS' Co-op's charitable scheme that blyth describes.
fwiw as a member of Co-ops, Building Societies, Friendly Societies, i argue that these mutuals shouldn't donate members' money. the businesses should be run properly, fairly, ethically, but then the benefits should be retained for the future/distributed to members, and we can choose how we use them, including donating to charities of our choice, if we so choose.
