We’re building a movement for good

Charitable giving is at the heart of what we do – and has been for over 130 years. Now more than ever we are proud to be one of the largest corporate donors to charity in the UK1, contributing to thousands of good causes in this country and abroad.

We are delighted that 2021 is the third year for our Movement for Goods awards – allowing us to give back to the communities we serve and champion the issues that really matter to them.

Our £1m giving programme has two funding phases:

  • Phase 1 now complete – 500 charities have received £1,000.

We have already awarded £500,000 to 500 charities in £1,000 grants. We know what a difference £1,000 will make to all of the winning charities – so a big thank you to everyone who participated.

  • Phase 2 now complete – We are awarding 30 charities a share of £500,000. Grants of £10,000, £50,000 and £100,000 to be awarded. 

We understand the importance of longer-term funding for charities, especially when trying to bring ambitious new ideas to life. That’s why we are awarding 30 charities with a £10,000 grant.

We are also aware of how difficult it can be to get larger transformative projects off the ground, so we are extremely pleased to announce that two of the lucky winners will receive an additional £50,000 grant and one will receive an additional £100,000 grant. The winners will be announced in early 2022.
