Help us to give back this Christmas
Christmas is a time for giving, and this year we’re giving back to the wonderful charities who work so hard to deliver vital services in our local community. We know that this has been a difficult year for everyone. But charities have been among the hardest hit, and they need our generosity more than ever. That’s why we’re using our festive celebrations to support Age UK Sheffield, Sheffield Children’s Hospital Charity, Sheffield Mind and St Luke’s Hospice.
If you can, please help us to help them by showing your support when you next visit us.
This December we’ll be launching a giant giving box, which you can find on Upper High Street, near Schuh store. Using contactless payment, you’ll be able to donate to these amazing charities and make a difference this Christmas. Thank you! Our giving box has a special way of showing just how much it appreciates your donation!
