One Stop raises a record amount in charity drive

Convenience retailer One Stop have raised a record £130,000-plus for the charity Children in Need in just six weeks.

Across the One Stop 900-strong store estate, more than £60,000 was raised in just one week. Its outlet in Langold, Worksop, Nottinghamshire, raised the most, with some £3,000 being donated to the charity.

Other stores staged raffles, tombolas and fancy-dress days to raise awareness of the charity drive and there was also a “Pedal for Pudsey” challenge where store staff did their cycling in-store or in the community on static bikes.

Three stores from Sheffield, South Yorkshire, raised more than £2,000 in six hours at Meadowhall Shopping Centre.

The company decided to start its fund-raising appeal a month early this year, which it says has really paid dividends in terms of the cash raised.

Liz Fox, head of sustainability and social responsibility, said: “This year, our store colleagues have been amazing in their efforts and our customers have responded by engaging in our fundraising and donating.”

Money raised will be able to stay locally to each store as Children in Need has a postcode locator enabling donations to go straight to causes within their own areas.

One Stop supports three national charities – Children in Need, Alzheimer’s Society and MacMillan Cancer Support – and has raised more than £6.5m for good causes in the past six years.
