As the situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to develop, families and communities across the country have been impacted both financially and emotionally as a result of this pandemic.
We understand that this is a challenging time for everyone, and we want to try and do all we can to give back to our colleagues, customers and communities, as a way of thanking them for their ongoing commitment and support during this time. We are therefore planning a number of initiatives over the coming days and weeks which will help and support others, as well as adding some enjoyment in these less than certain times.
We have launched a nationwide initiative to roll-out special product bundles worth £600,000 to hospital trusts.
These hand-picked care packages selected by our teams and will include hand washes, hand creams, moisturisers, sanitisers and healthy snacks and vitamins to help provide vital support to NHS staff and volunteers caring for COVID-19 patients.
We have also donated Easter eggs to the value of £130,000 to food banks, homeless shelters, NHS trusts and Holland & Barrett staff across the country.
We hope that by using the skills and resources available to us, we can help make a little bit of difference to supporting staff and those on the front line at this incredibly difficult time.
We have also introduced a ‘Pennies digital donation’. This will give you the option to add a 50p top-up donation when paying for your purchases to help support the NHS Charities Together COVID-19 Urgent Appeal.
We've set ourselves a target of £50,000. See how much we've raised so far below.
