Nisa donated almost £1m to charities and other good causes across the UK and Ireland through its Making a Difference Locally (MADL) charity last year, it has been revealed.
Over 2,000 individual donations were made in 2018 to causes including community groups, schools, Scout groups, charities, sports clubs and many more.
One such cause to benefit from a donation last year was The Regal Tenbury Trust, who received £1,000 from Bowkett’s Nisa Extra in Tenbury Wells to help fund its community musical (pictured).
Bowkett’s General Manager, Glenys Holdcroft commented: “As a theatre and cinema, The Regal receives no major sponsorship and relies heavily on their volunteer base, so we are delighted to be able to help them to continue their valuable service to the community with this donation.”
Kate Carroll, Nisa’s Head of Charity, added: “Donating almost £1m is another great milestone to reach in our 10th birthday year, which saw the charity raise £10m since 2008.”
MADL raises funds in Nisa partner stores through sales of Heritage own label products and branded items featured on the Nisa leaflet, in addition to funds raised via in-store collecting tins.
