In April, we saw a 120% increase in orders from our network and supported over 1,400 charity partners. As we continue to face an unprecedented demand for life’s essentials, we remain hugely grateful to the donor companies offering their incredible support during the current crisis.

We are determined to help the 4,000 charities relying on us to secure the goods they need to deliver their work in disadvantaged communities across the UK.
