Staff at the UK's largest independent co-operative have raised £330,000 for a charity that works to end domestic violence in the Midlands.
Employees at the Midcounties Co-operative raised the figure for Women’s Aid through sponsorship, sales and events in a two year partnership.
They also volunteered at refuges in Wolverhampton, Walsall, Shropshire, Wyre Forest, Warwickshire, Wycombe, Oxfordshire, The Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire and Swindon.
Funds raised will be used to extend its women’s resource centre to help women who have experienced domestic abuse into education and employment.
Midcounties Co-operative chief executive Ben Reid said: “Raising £330,000 for our charity partner is a magnificent achievement and will make a life changing difference for many women and children seeking escape from domestic violence.”
