Dobbies announce Local Charity Partners

15 March, 2016

Dobbies is delighted to have confirmed its new Local Charity Partners for each of its stores around the UK.

All local charity partners at Dobbies will have the opportunity to create a bespoke fundraising plan. In the past few years, charities have held events in the store, such as fun days with cupcake decorating and fancy dress competitions.

Andy King, Managing Director said: “We’re really looking forward to welcoming our new local charity partners into our 35 stores. Our customers have always been incredibly generous, and I know they will be keen to support all of the charities that have been chosen for the outstanding work they do in their local area.”

For the first time, Dobbies’ Local Charity Partners will also be benefitting from the 5p carrier bag charge, which will give fundraising efforts an extra boost.

The leading garden centre retailer has national charity partnerships to complement their local fundraising programme, and is proud to have recently raised over £171,000 for Teenage Cancer Trust over the Christmas period.
