Hastings Co-op shareholders will receive new benefits with the news that the Co-op has partnered with Sports and Spinal Physiotherapy Clinic.

Shareholders and Co-op employees can now enjoy 20% off all consultation services, including Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Dietician, Exercise Physiologist and Remedial Massage on top of the suite of Co-op discounts and benefits.

“We welcomed the chance to partner with Dean, Rob and the team when they kindly approached us, as there are lots of synergies in terms of our customer service approach and commitment to giving back to the community,” Co-op chief executive officer Allan Gordon said.

“The 20% discount for employees is part of a wider Employee Benefits Program we offer, but this is the first time we’ve partnered with an external business to reward loyal shareholders.”

As an added bonus, every time a shareholder of Co-op or employee visits a Sports and Spinal Physiotherapy Clinic in Wauchope, Port Macquarie or Laurieton, 5% of fees will be donated back to a registered sporting team or club, community group, school or charity of their choice.

Sports and Spinal Physiotherapy Clinic owner’s Dean Lawler and Robert Eid said that creating partnerships within the local business community is an important part of their ongoing vision and a win-win situation for them and the Co-op.

“The Co-op are such big contributors to the community, and it's great to partner with someone who thinks along the same community lines as us,” said Dean.

“It’s also great to be able to offer a local community-based program that passes rewards such as money, gift vouchers and prizes back to sporting teams and clubs, local community groups, school and charities,” he said.

Sports and Spinal already sponsor clubs in Wauchope including the Wauchope Thunder, Wauchope Soccer Club, Wauchope Hockey Club, Wauchope parkrun and baseball.

To take advantage of the offer shareholders or employees must present their shareholder or employee ID card.
