Generous customers at the Tamworth Co-op convenience store in Dordon raised £250 for the club by donating the dividends on their purchases.

The money was allocated from the Tamworth Co-op’s Community Dividend Fund which distributes thousands of pounds each year to organisations in the area.

Andy Brown, secretary of North Warwickshire Retired Miners Club, said the money would be used to pay for a coach trip to Llandudno for the 37 members.

“We’ve been supported by the Tamworth Co-op in the past and we’re very thankful for their help,” he said.

“Thanks to them we’ll be having a great day out at the seaside.”

Julie-Ann Kester, manager of the Tamworth Co-op convenience store in Dordon presented the cheque to the group.

“I hope they have a fantastic outing on us,” she said.

The next round of nominations for community groups to receive cash from the Tamworth Co-op can be made between October 12 and November 30, 2015.
