The Tamworth Co-operative Society has always supported the local community. In 1889, for example, we gave cash to a local cottage hospital, the fire brigade, and even to a member who had lost his horse. This tradition of giving has lasted for more than a century and today’s Tamworth Co-op helps the community in many ways. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, we held an annual Christmas memorial service for people who have lost loved ones. The Society supports various charities too with ad hoc donations. Our Community Dividend Fund generates a five-figure sum each year which is split between 12 worthy organisations across our trading area.
These are the good causes supported by each branch in 2021:
||Ankermoor Primary School
||Dordon Primary School
||Dosthill Primary Academy
||William McGregor Primary School
||Kingsbury Primary School
||Willows Primary School
||Nethersole Church of England Academy

“We’re local, we’re independent and we care.”
