The Original Factory Shop backs 170 local charities
The Original Factory Shop has raised £50,000 for local charities close to its 170 stores.
Back in May, people in the local community were asked to vote for which charity they would like their store to back. Funding for each charity comes from a variety of sources and includes customer donations via in-store charity boxes and donations made when a customer buys a carrier bag or swipes their TOFS club member card.
Chosen charity partners include the likes of Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance, The Big Cat Sanctuary in Ashford and Dunbar Against Litter.
Phil Briggs, The Original Factory Shop’s managing director, said: “Our position as a local retailer can help raise awareness and funds for these charities, and our passion for supporting communities is at the core of what we do. It also means that every penny that local customers raise is invested in causes that matter to them. I have no doubt that our colleagues will continue to come up with some exciting and creative ways of raising valuable funds.”
