If you’re already a Co-op Member and have a blue card you can support The Gingerbread Centre between now and October, 2022. You just simply need to select us as the charity you would like to support. Go to: and select the “Choose a Local Cause” tab at the top and then enter your email address and password. If The Gingerbread Centre is not there to select, go down to the bottom of the page and use “Find Other Causes”. We come under the “Wellbeing” category – select the 15 mile radius.

If you are not already a Co-op Member, you can join at your local store for just £1.

If you are a Tesco shopper and buy your groceries or last minute items at their stores in Longton, Meir, Meir Hay, or Blythe Bridge, then please do claim your charity blue token each time you shop and use it to vote for The Stoke Gingerbread Centre between now and the end of March. It’s simple, the more tokens we get, the bigger the donation from Tesco!

And finally, at no cost to you, you can support us while you shop online at 6000 retailers including Amazon, Boots, M&S and many, many more. Not just your regular shopping but including car insurance and holidays. Just go to
