You can raise free donations for the Community Impact Fund when you shop

Our Community Impact fund helps provide much-needed income to the vital network of organisations that support our communities. This awesome collection of schools, charities (both large and small), community groups, amateur sports clubs and social enterprises desperately need additional support to keep going. We are passionate about supporting all good causes no matter how big or small; together we can build a Giving Nation to make an impactful difference.
