Cally shoppers are doing their bit for charity – as MP Emily Thornberry heard.

The shadow foreign secretary has been busy trying to make sense of Donald Trump’s presidency, but still had time to pop into the Co-op to find out which causes it is supporting this year.

Anyone with a membership card will see 1 per cent of their bill for own-brand goods donated to charitable causes.

They are King’s Cross woman’s charity women@thewell, nearby ‘green oasis’ the Calthorpe Project, and FoodCycle, which turns food waste into tasty meals.
