Community Champions

Community Champions is our way of giving back to our local communities. We launched this back in 2013 and since then we’ve helped hundreds of local charities and community groups each year raising amounts from £200 to over £200,000.

Applications for the next round of Community Champions funding is now open, the application deadline is 17 February 2023.

We’ll be fundraising for successful applicants in the summer from June-September.

How it works

Every time a member shops in one of our outlets, we make a donation to a good cause through the Community Champions scheme.

The groups are chosen by our staff and members for a three month period.
