Helping Hands is a new community initiative where each local store has been given a budget to distribute to projects and schemes within the stores local community. To apply for a donation from the Helping Hands Fund you need to visit your local store and pick up an application form. These forms can be found on your stores red community boards or if you cannot find them, ask for assistance at the customer service desk.
Please direct any requests for donations to your local store; these cannot be fulfilled at Head Office. If any letters requesting a donation are sent to Head Office we will endeavour to send them to the appropriate store where possible.
From all the different regions that we trade in across the country we sponsor 30 individuals who have either a special talent, are an inspiration to others or help in their local community.
If you feel you fit the criteria above and wish to apply to be one of our local stars you need to visit your local store and pick up an application form. This then needs posting to Wilkinsons, JK House, Roebuck Way, Manton Wood, Worksop, Nottinghamshire, S80 3YY where this will be kept on file and your application will be considered by the Charity Committee. Only completed Local Stars application forms will be considered please do not write in separately to the Local Stars Scheme.
