A WHOPPING £10,000 has been donated by The Southern Co-operative to the International Co-operative Alliance’s recovery fund following Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

Silena Dominy, Society Secretary for The Southern Co-operative, based in Portsmouth, said: ‘The International Co-operative Alliance, of which TSC is a member, is working with the Philippine people to re-establish co-operatives in the region as soon as possible and ensure the continuity of communities during what will be a long recovery period.

‘We are pleased to announce that The Southern Co-operative is donating £10,000 to the recovery fund.’

Ms Dominy said the firm, which began as the Portsea Island Co-operative, has a long history of supporting charitable causes, and felt it was right to donate to help the Philippine people.

She said: ‘Our board of directors felt strongly that 
TSC should extend TSC’s support to the communities devastated by Typhoon Haiyan.’
