Tu donates £100,000 from uniform sales to support school meals and food clubs
Sainsbury’s Tu clothing brand is donating £100,000 from sales of school uniforms to its longstanding charity partner Comic Relief.
The funds will be used to support free school meals and kids’ food clubs across the UK.
Comic Relief will split the £100,000 donation evenly between two of its key projects including Feeding Britain, which supports a national network of 77 regional and local anti-hunger partnerships, and The Bread and Butter Thing, which aims to provide affordable food to the UK’s most deprived communities.
Emma Benjafield, director of product at Sainsbury’s Clothing, said: “We know life is tough for many of our customers who are facing increased costs of living, so we want to do everything we can to support families who need support now more than ever.
“The Bread and Butter Thing and Feeding Britain are making a huge difference to local communities, especially during the back-to-school period when family finances can be really stretched, and we hope our donation will help them continue their incredible work.”
Tu Clothing has also committed to holding its uniform prices from last year to support families shopping for the back-to-school season.
