Retail partnership raises millions for hospices

 

Includes revenue from the bag levy initiative

Children’s Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS) has seen £2 million raised through its charity partnership with Primark.

The fashion retailer, which has supported CHAS since 2015 and throughout the Covid pandemic, has donated more than £375,000 this year alone through its bag levy initiative.

Colleagues from stores across Scotland have also raised thousands for the charity through various fundraising ventures such as this year’s Glasgow Kiltwalk which alone raised £12,000.

Angharad Low, CHAS Corporate Partnerships Manager, said: “We cannot thank Primark and its employees enough for their incredibly generous ongoing support.

“For many of the families CHAS supports, fears around Covid haven’t gone away plus they have the added challenge of the rising cost of living. CHAS’s support for these families has never been more vital so we are especially grateful for Primark’s support throughout these challenging times.”

Malcolm Campbell, area manager for Primark said: “Helping families and children in need is a cause close to our hearts and we are delighted to reach this donation milestone for an incredible charity.  We are so proud to support CHAS who make a real difference to families across Scotland.”
