CHAS thanks Primark after bag levy donations hit £2 million milestone

Primark staff members who took part in the Kiltwalk for CHAS

CHILDREN’S Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS) has issued a personal thank you to charity partner Primark for its ongoing support after the company’s bag levy donations reached the £2 million mark.

The leading fashion retailer, which has supported CHAS since 2015 and throughout the Covid pandemic, has donated more than £375,000 this year alone through its bag levy initiative. 

Colleagues from stores across Scotland have also raised thousands for the charity through various fundraising ventures such as this year’s Glasgow Kiltwalk which alone raised £12,000.

CHAS Corporate Partnerships Manager, Angharad Low said: “We cannot thank Primark and their employees enough for their incredibly generous ongoing support.

“For many of the families CHAS supports, fears around Covid haven’t gone away plus they have the added challenge of the rising cost of living. CHAS’s support for these families has never been more vital so we are especially grateful for Primark’s support throughout these challenging times.”

Malcolm Campbell, Area Manager for Primark said: “Helping families and children in need is a cause close to our hearts and we are delighted to reach this donation milestone for an incredible charity.  We are so proud to support CHAS who make a real difference to families across Scotland.”
