Fundraising for the community

ONE Stop has spent the summer supporting vulnerable families through its partnership with FareShare.

The Tesco-owned convenience retail franchise ran a Summer Holiday activity book campaign from 25 July to 2 September, in a effort to raise funds for the food poverty charity.

The campaign saw One Stop sell summer activity books in store, priced at £1, with all profits to be donated to FareShare. It was the third time One Stop sold a chidren’s activity book to raise funds for the charity.

One Stop also donated 2p to FareShare for every individual and multipack of fresh fruit and vegetables sold over the course of the summer campaign.

The seasonal charity drive follows a major donation to FareShare made by One Stop at the end of last year. At the launch of its partnership with FareShare, One Stop donated £80,000 to the charity to support vulnerable families during the winter months.

Neil Thomas, head of transformation at One Stop, commented: “We’re fully behind the work of FareShare. Through our large network of stores we see first-hand how some people in our communities need additional support. The reliance on charities such as FareShare is particularly sad to see in today’s society and is further exacerbated during the cost-of-living crisis.

“Throughout One Stop all our colleagues play an important role in maintaining and expanding the ongoing and great relationship we have with FareShare. We’re able to work together on a national level consolidating our efforts into this and other campaigns, as we raise additional funds and also seek to drive awareness of the charity’s work.”

“We believe that with over 900 stores throughout the UK, we’re able to continue making a real difference this summer and support FareShare. With the popularity of the activity books at both Christmas and Easter, we believe that the summer activity book will be no different.”
