Three not-for-profit groups have earned themselves a share of thousands of pounds thanks to a shopping scheme in Yatton.

The Co-op puts 1p of every £1 spent on own-brand items into its local community fund.

The money raised at the Yatton supermarket over the past six months has been collected and on April 19 it was dished out between YACWAG, the Yatton Federated Schools Association and St Anne’s Preschool.
