An East Ren charity set up as a way of paying back something to the community after its founder received a transplant, is overjoyed with recent news.
Russell MacMillan, who set up East Ren Good Causes learnt last week that the Co-op has selected his charity under their community engagement scheme.
This means ERGC will receive a portion of the money raised from the carrier bag charge made in-store, as well as some of the profits made by the local Newton Mearns store.
Russell said: “We are delighted to have been selected by the Co-op to be a recipient of their latest charity work”
Paul French, branch manager of the Co-op in Broom Road East, said: “As we already work with ER Good Causes as a charity partner with their ERGC Store initiative, it was a natural choice to have them as one of our charities to support with the latest Co-op Community Fund initiative.
“ERGC gets support right to individual people at a local grass roots level which fits perfectly with the type of charity the company feel it’s important to support.”
