Customers at 11 Notcutts Garden Centres nationwide have helped to raise over £5,000 for The Royal British Legion during a fundraising campaign in November 2018. The total was raised using Pennies, the digital charity box: the micro-donation scheme where customers have the option of rounding up their purchase at the till with the difference going to charity.
Notcutts chose to support The Royal British Legion, the UK’s leading Armed Forces charity, in recognition of 100 years since the end of The First World War. The money raised will go towards helping today’s Armed Forces communities, who need support in a range of issues including financial support, mobility problems and housing.
Kath Mitchell, General Manager at Notcutts Ashton Park Garden Centre, met with volunteers and staff members at The Royal British Legion’s ‘Pop In’ centre in Manchester on Friday 1st February to celebrate the donation of £5,441.48.
Chris Coward, Operations & Visual Merchandising Director at Notcutts, said: “The Royal British Legion does incredible work to help people in very difficult circumstances across the country. It’s been fantastic to see all the pennies add up to support such a great cause.”
Ben France, Head of Corporate Partnerships at The Royal British Legion, said: “A big thank you to Notcutts for fundraising for us during the month of November, which marked the Centenary of the end of the First World War. Notcutts has been a very valued Pennies partner, especially in such a poignant year for the charity.”
