We are thrilled to announce that our fundraising total for our national charity partner, the NSPCC, has reached the £2 million mark.
All the money raised goes towards the NSPCC Speak out. Stay safe. Program enabling the NSPCC to reach 666,600 primary school children, in more than 3,500 primary schools nationwide, helping to empower them with the knowledge to protect themselves from abuse.
As part of this program school assemblies are held for children aged 5-11, followed by a one-hour classroom workshop for years 5/6 (England and Wales) and P6/7 (Scotland and Northern Ireland).
We have reached this fantastic milestone through the hard work and dedication of our teams throughout the UK, participating in activities such as the Peak District Challenge, the Gherkin Challenge, the London Marathon and many other sport tournaments. Teams from our offices, regional distribution centres and stores have also arranged fundraising through bake sales, free prize draws and fancy-dress days.
Our customers have also contributed to this achievement through donating via collection tins in store and purchasing specific products, including our Favorina Easter eggs, ‘Thankyou Teacher’ bouquets and breakfast cereal range.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed and helped towards this fantastic achievement!
