Every time a Scotmid Co-operative member shops in a Scotmid Food store, they can scan their Community Connect Card to receive one Community Connect vote.

Members then register and attend twice-yearly member meetings to cast their votes to allocate awards of up to £15,000 to three Good Cause Groups or charities in their local area.

All three member areas in Scotland – North, East and West – will each shortlist three good cause groups, who are looking for funding in their relevant geographical area.

The group with the most votes receives £15,000 and the two runner-ups are awarded £5,000.
