TWO community causes in Emsworth are sharing a £15,000 windfall from the local Co-op.

Cheques were presented to representatives of the Emsworth Pastoral Centre and Emsworth Business Association by The Southern Co-operative.

The cash was raised by residents swiping a community card when they buy groceries and a small portion of the cash being donated to local causes.

A total of £10,000 was donated to the business association, with £5,000 to the pastoral centre.

Businesses will use the cash to invest in this year’s Christmas lights and the cash will help meet the running costs of the pastoral centre.
