Nisa retailers donate £165,000 to good causes during second lockdown

Almost £165,000 has been donated to good causes by Nisa retailers during England’s second lockdown period.

Between 5 November and 2 December, 212 stores made a total of 329 donations via the symbol group’s Making a Difference Locally charity.

A total of 60% of these donations were made to health and wellbeing charities; 11% to good causes promoting good food and nutrition (such as foodbanks); 20% to learning facilities such as schools and playgroups; and 7% to charities providing shelter and security services, including centres for the homeless.

Kate Carroll, Nisa’s head of charity, said: “We’ve seen countless examples of Nisa partners going above and beyond for their local communities this year and demonstrating the value independent retailers provide to the local area.

“The additional support given to good causes via Making a Difference Locally, at a time when many are facing a significant loss of income but a higher demand for their services, has been incredible.

“November was one of our biggest ever months for partner donations and we expect the additional support offered by Nisa retailers to their communities to continue throughout the festive period and beyond.”

Since its formation in 2008, Making a Difference Locally has raised more than £12.3 million and supported charities and other good causes with over 13,000 donations.
