B&M Stores Support for Foodbanks
Each store is authorised to provide a local foodbank with a £1,500 donation, so they can buy essential groceries, cleaning goods and toiletries. To apply 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.
Grants of up to £5,000 are available for local charities that support people experiencing bad housing or homelessness, as well as community projects looking to improve their spaces.
