Retail Trust launches twitter campaign to support retailers affected by riots

The Retail Trust has launched a twitter campaign, #highstheroes, to raise funds for retail staff and shopkeepers affected by the riots.

The Trust says that anyone can donate from as little as £1 and 100% of all donations will go directly to those retail staff and shopkeepers whose livelihoods have suffered due to the damage caused by the rioting and looting. The Retail Trust Helpline, 0808 801 0808, is open 24/7 for retail staff and shopkeepers affected directly or indirectly.

Retail Trust CEO Nigel J L Rothband said: “Feelings are running deep in all the affected areas of our country, but what is remarkable is the community spirit that is coming to the fore in terms of clean up culture and helping each other out the morning after.

“We have already had a number of people who have nothing directly to do with retail contacting us to see if they can fundraise or help out the retail sector specifically, images of which have dominated the media in terms of headline grabbing devastation.

“The Retail Trust Helpline 0808 801 0808 is here to help anyone connected with retail when they are in time of need. This is a time of need for so many retail staff and their families and friends.  We are here to support all retail staff and shopkeepers, our high street heroes, who need our support now more than ever.”

Contributions at any level can be donated via the website www.retailtrust.org.uk, or by texting HSTH11 £5 to 70070.
