THREE good causes in Largs are sharing in a festive season pay-out - thanks to the generosity of local Co-op customers.


The Largs Foodbank, Largs First Responders and Largs RNLI lifeboat station are each getting a slice of £3,364.55 from the supermarket's Local Community Fund.

Representatives of the three groups visited the Co-op in town to meet store manager Lucy Graybil.

A spokesperson for the Largs Foodbank said: "We would like to thank the local community for their support through the Co-op and their continuing support throughout the year."

Largs RNLI and Largs First Responders also thanked the community for generous donations.

Co-op members have raised the funds to support the local projects they care about by simply swiping or scanning their membership card when buying own-brand products and services, with members earning rewards for themselves and for their community too.

Co-op’s Local Community Fund has supported more than 36,000 local community projects across the UK since it launched in 2016.
