Hucknall and Bulwell Co-op members get a slice of £500,000 payout
Central England Co-op (CEC) has shared out over £537,000 among its members as a reward for their loyalty.
The society, which operates more than 400 food stores and funeral homes across the 20 counties – including ones in Hucknall and Bulwell – has said ‘thank you’ to more than 119,000 members with its latest payout.
Now, shoppers can use their dividend when they next visit a CEC store to pick up food and vital essentials.
Not only do shoppers benefit by being a member of the society, but their continued support also allows the business to invest funds into supporting a whole host of important community projects and local good causes.

Gillian Trickitt, membership manager at CEC, said: “Our members are at the heart of everything we do, and we would like to thank them for their loyalty.
“Throughout the year, we give a share of our profits not only to our members, but to local community groups too and it’s because of our members that we can make a real difference and give back to our communities in the way we do.
“I’d like to thank members for their continued support and hope they enjoy this reward for their wonderful loyalty to CEC.

“It also gives access to community initiatives including the Community Dividend Fund, which hands out grants of up to £5,000 to charities and good causes across the society’s trading estate.”
