The PerfectHome Community Outreach Scheme donates £30,000 a year to enable store managers and their teams to help make a difference to worthy causes in their local community.
Examples include: a £1,000 donation to the Seeds of Hope charity in Chelmsley Wood, used too renew food hygiene certificates so volunteers can serve a Christmas dinner this year for elderly and lonely local people, a £500 donation each in Stockton to the charity Daisy Chain in Stockton, which supports families affected by autism and the Butterwick Hospice.
