One Stop has announced that it has reached an incredible milestone, having raised £10 million over the last 10 years through in-store fundraising and grant programmes.
The convenience store retailer is taking this opportunity to reflect on all the national and local charities who have been helped along the way. The money has benefitted both the retailer’s national charity partners such as Macmillan, Children in Need, Alzheimer’s Society as well as local charities and causes in the communities in which One Stop serves.
“We are absolutely thrilled to have reached this milestone,” said Jack Taylor, One Stop Community and Partnerships Manager.
“Our heartfelt thanks to all our customers and colleagues for giving their money and time so generously. Our colleagues have clocked up over 282,000 hours volunteering since 2013! We’re incredibly grateful and proud of each and every one of them.”
This as well as other community orientated initiatives from One Stop were recently recognised at the Retail Industry Awards 2022 where they were awarded the Multiple Community Retailer of the Year award.
The convenience retailer has on average raised and donated £1 million every year since 2013 and it is closing in on the £1 million figure again this year.
