Staff and customers at Lincolnshire Co-op have smashed their previous record, raising £143,362.98 for the Society’s Charity of the Year, Alzheimer’s Society.

The team at Spalding Post Office held an Easter lucky dip and raffle to raise £121 and staff at Holbeach Post Office made £130 with activities including a name the chick competition.

Spalding Travel colleagues pitched in, cycling 71 miles for Lincolnshire Co-op’s Miles for Memories challenge, raising £83.

Generous customers also raised thousands buying Alzheimer’s Society pin badges in Co-op outlets and staff members contributed nearly £1,500 by donating the odd pence of their wages, while Salvation Army clothing banks in food store car parks have added £15,000 to the pot.
