Birthday bonus for members

Thousands of Lincolnshire Co-op members in the Market Rasen area are sharing a dividend payout of more than £127,000, including an extra bonus celebrating the Society’s 150th birthday.

Members who came to the Society’s AGMs voted to approve a special one-off Big Birthday Bonus this year. It adds up to £1 of dividend bonus per £1 of points they’ve collected.

It means that the Society’s 2,847 members in Market Rasen will share in an extra £63,684 on top of the £63,684 they’ve received during the year, a total of £127,368.

Six groups in the Market Rasen area also got grants.
