Bags of cash for wor­thy causes

The Oban Times - - News -

THE Co- op­er­a­tive re­tail group is shar­ing money raised through the sale of car­rier bag, and is ask­ing for nom­i­na­tions for good causes in Ar­gyll and Bute which would ben­e­fit from the cash.

The re­tailer has said around 1,000 or­gan­i­sa­tions across Scot­land will re­ceive grants of be­tween £200 and £2,500.

In ad­di­tion to the 5p min­i­mum charge on sin­gle-use bags, the Co- op has also pledged to go fur­ther and top up the fund with pro­ceeds from its en­tire range of car­ri­ers.

Good causes can be nom­i­nated un­til mid­night on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 7.
