We are delighted to announce that the Co-op has chosen Reading Mencap to benefit as a local cause as part of their Local Community Fund!

This means every time shoppers, who are also members of the Co-op, buy Co-op branded products and services – anything from a loaf of bread to planning a funeral – 1% of their spend goes to a good cause like ours.

This money, along with the proceeds from the Co-op's carrier bag sales, is used to support local services like ours, which benefit the community.

However, to make sure we receive these donations, we need as many people as possible to log in to and choose us as their local cause.

If you are not a Co-op member yet, you can sign up for £1. Membership buys you a share in Co-op and gives you 5% reward on purchases.

The money raised through the Co-op Local Cause will go towards our Mencap Enables Day Activity Service. Funding is needed so the 36 adults who regularly use the service can continue to take part in educational, sports and leisure activities such as Zumba, bowling and life skills courses.

We are also particularly pleased to have been picked by the Co-op as members of our ME Service regularly visit our local Co-op in Erleigh Road, Reading to buy milk and biscuits for the centre!
