At wilko, we’ve always supported good causes that are close to the hearts of our team members and the communities we serve - it's our family values. Over the years, we've found 1,000s of ways to help raise funds for charities and local groups - from baked bean baths to big bake offs, we love to get involved. We believe that lots of little wins make the world of difference, and that's why we created our Together for Families charity partnership.

We launched Together for Families in 2018, with three UK national charities; Alzheimer’s Society, Save the Children and Teenage Cancer Trust, with all donations shared equally amongst them.

The programme was designed to support families when they need it most and to tackle the key social issues often faced by hard-working families in their everyday lives.

Alzheimer’s Society provides people affected by dementia the support they need, when they need it most. Save the Children supports parents to help boost their children’s learning and give them the best start in life, and Teenage Cancer Trust supports young people with cancer who need specialist nursing and emotional support, and is the only UK charity dedicated to meeting this critical need.

With team member fundraising, together with customer support, we’ve raised over an amazing £2 million so far. All funds raised are equally shared by our partners, with each charity received £666,666 which has helped fund approximately 27 Dementia Advisers for an entire year, 1,225 Early Years Grants to families across the UK and provide just over 22,000 hours specialist nurses support for young people with cancer.

As with so many other things, the Covid-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on charities, and how they are funded. But the essential support they offer and the need for it hasn’t stopped. And because we believe that lots of little wins can make the world of difference, we’d be so grateful, if you could make a donation to our Together for Families partnership, no matter how big or small.
