The Channel Islands Co-operative Society
Since 1919, when our first food store opened its doors, we have been an integral part of the local community and today employ more than 1,000 islanders. We are passionate supporters of local suppliers and growers and are proud to work closely with local producers who provide over 1,000 local products for our stores. From donating raffle prizes and holding bag packs in our stores to supporting local environmental projects and sponsoring events, our support for the community is both constant and far-reaching. During a typical year the Society will donate to around 250 organisations, and allow around 100 charities to collect at our stores or bag pack at our tills. We helped approximately 300 charities in 2015 by donating prizes and goods to the value of £10,500. Every year we donate around £25,000 from the Eco-Fund to local environmental projects and also give away around £17,000 annually to charitable causes through the Helping Hands scheme.
