The Foundation is an independent registered charity and our mission is simple and clear, we want to make life better for people. That’s why we raise both money and awareness for good causes.
We have raised over £23 million for many fantastic causes over the years. This money is generated from our fabulous colleagues fundraising efforts, from senior executives through to each store colleague and of course our amazing customers too.
An incredible £2,680,254.00 has come from our hugely popular golf event, and we thank the outstanding generosity of our suppliers and supporters who join with us to make this event so successful and so enjoyable!
As many of you know our ‘Dementia: let’s beat it’ campaign is a significant focus of a great deal of our time and support, with over £15 million donated to date to help tackle this tragic condition. We are continuing with that campaign and our store charity week in June this year will raise money for Alzheimer’s Research UK.
We took the decision to partner with The Sepsis Trust for our 2019 golf event, after the challenge and devastating impact of sepsis was brought to our attention by colleagues. We have already launched an education piece on the symptoms of sepsis amongst our 23,000 colleagues and the foundation has supported the launch of their ‘schools against sepsis’ campaign in the North West.
With your support this year we know we can do so much more to help them raise awareness of this distressing disease and together we can undoubtedly save lives. Learn more about Sepsis now.
