We are thrilled that Poundland has announced that Tommy’s, alongside Make-A-Wish® UK and Whizz-Kidz, will be one of its three new charity partners in a bid to collectively raise £1 million a year for the next three years.

From today, Poundland customers, suppliers, and colleagues are all being encouraged to change the lives of children, young people and families in their local communities through donations in store.

Barry Williams, Poundland MD said:

“I’m delighted that over the next three years we’ll be supporting these three amazing charities. We don’t believe anyone has created a charity partnership like this before, so we have a great opportunity to give back to the local communities and help change the lives of children and families, by raising as much money as possible. This is the start of a very exciting partnership.”

Jane Brewin, CEO of Tommy’s said:

“Poundland, like Tommy’s, is all about helping families' across the UK to create those special family moments.  Tommy’s funds research into preventing baby loss and provides trusted pregnancy advice, because we believe every family should be able to experience the joy of parenthood.  Thanks to our partnership, Poundland customers, suppliers, and colleagues can be proud that they are saving babies’ lives.

“This partnership is an amazing opportunity to help end baby loss across the UK. Losing a baby isn’t just ‘something that happens’ or ‘nature’s way’ – we know we can stop it, and we’re glad that thousands of Poundland customers and staff are going to help us to make such a big and important difference to so many lives.”
