Since 2006, Chelmsford Star Co-op has raised over £400,000 through our Charity of the Year initiative, benefited such causes as the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance, Canine Partners, Essex Dementia Care, and the Alzheimer's Society, along with many other wonderful causes.
Our focus across this 2020/21 fundraising year is on supporting charities and organisations across Essex that are struggling due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To that end, we've formed a partnership with the Essex Community Foundation to raise money for The Essex Coronavirus Response & Recovery Programme.
Until May 2021, all money raised from colleagues, members and customers will go towards this fund, which will be used to keep many vital services running across Essex that might otherwise be at risk, both now and as we move forward into the next stages of recovery.
You can support this fund by donating to collection tins in any of our outlets, or via our Justgiving page here.
