Making a Difference Locally is a charity that has been established to help independent retailers support their local communities.
The communities supported are those which are served by local independently-owned convenience stores that are partners of Nisa, a buying organisation.
The charity helps Nisa stores raise money that can then be donated to local charities and good causes. This is done through the sale of selected products in store, including all Co-op own brand items and those from Nisa’s own-label Heritage range.
Every time an item included in the scheme is purchased, a proportion of the price is added to the store’s MADL fund and this is then donated to good causes in that store’s local area.
We believe that local independently-run convenience stores are at the heart of communities, ideally placed to provide their customers with a personal and friendly service during their shopping trip. Our charity helps them further cement their position in the community – YOUR community - and reward it for the support it has given over the years.
