B&M appreciates that many households will be facing extreme hardship due to the current crisis. As a community retailer with over 670 stores across the country, they would like to do their little bit to help people get through this.
Each of the stores are authorised to provide a local foodbank with a £1,500 donation, so they can buy essential groceries, cleaning goods and toiletries. The foodbank needs to be a registered charity and one foodbank per store is eligible.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with details of your foodbank, stating the registered charity number, the registered address and the full name of the representative authorised to collect the donation. Please also state your preferred nearby B&M branch that you wish to visit. They will then reply on how to access the donation.
They ask that the purchases be spread out across 3 or 4 visits, so that stores can keep stocks flowing. Stores typically get a new delivery every single day and, if the purchases are sensibly spread out, this should not affect availability for our other shoppers, including the elderly and vulnerable.
Finally, B&M applaud everyone who works or volunteers at a foodbank.
