Supporting Soldiers in Leicester
Soldiers who have recently been tasked with carrying out Covid19 tests for the local community at a dedicated site close to our Rowlatts Hill Store had a lovely surprise when they visited our store today for their lunch. The Soldiers have been coming in everyday to buy lunch and Liz Phillips, Store Manager, wanted to show her appreciation for the support they are giving to the local community, especially during the second lock-down.
We decided to put some "Goodie" bags together with some snacks, juice and some treats, and the Southern Membership & Community Council were delighted to donate some vouchers to support with this lovely gesture. The Soldiers were extremely surprised and very grateful to everyone at Central England Co-operative for thinking of them.
