The Co-operative chose Mencap and our sister charity ENABLE
The money raised will be used for Mencap's project Inspire Me which will help 25,000 young people with a learning disability transform their lives through a range of volunteering, employment and community involvement opportunities.
Mark Goldring, Mencap’s chief executive, said: “We have been overwhelmed by the support shown by everyone at The Co-operative Group. Their fundraising efforts and generosity have made the partnership a great success. I would like to thank the staff, members and customers for helping to raise such a fantastic sum of money, which will give thousands of young people with a learning disability the chance to change their future."
