Gibbs & Dandy’s boost for charities and good causes

Published:  01 April, 2015

Gibbs & Dandy will donate an extra £10,500 to charities, voluntary groups and community projects in 2015.

The money will be distributed via its 30 branches, with each branch responsible for allocating the funds to local causes of their choice.

Neil Lawrence, managing director of Gibbs & Dandy, said: “We’re very proud of our reputation for supporting numerous local and national good causes, so we’re extremely happy to be able to announce this increased support.

“Our branches are committed to their local communities and over the years they have done some great work within their respective communities. For example, last year the King’s Lynn branch signed a three-year sponsorship deal with Lynn Ladies FC and the branch in Dorchester has on a number of occasions supported the Joseph Weld Hospice.

"Meanwhile up in Pudsey, the branch supports the Hunslet Hawks rugby league team with its work throughout the local community.”
