Charity Race Day 2019

We were delighted to hold our first supplier charity race day at Warwick race course on Wednesday 29th May to raise money for our amazing charities Tommy’s, Whizz-Kidz and Make-A-Wish.

The event was a huge success and raised an incredible £82,000 from the generosity of our suppliers.

Everyone had a fantastic time and the feedback from suppliers has been brilliant. We look forward to holding our second charity race day next year.

During the evening Barry Williams, Poundland’s managing director, presented the charities with a cheque for £445,000 which includes all the fundraising we and our customers have been doing over the last few months, bringing our charity total to a staggering £1.8 million. Thanks to everyone for their kind generosity and support!

Mia's Den

Mia is 11 and living with Metastic Osteosarcoma – a form of cancer which has led to her having to lose a leg – and she now has a prosthetic leg.  It was her wish to have a den in the back garden of her home, in Cardigan, so she has somewhere to spend time with her friends as she’s spent so long away from them during her treatment.

Together with Make-A-Wish, a team of Poundland volunteers helped make Mia’s wish a reality as they transformed a garden house into a magical den for Mia.

Huge thanks to our team: Gareth Alexander, Kevin Wilson, Patrick Hunt, Natalie Morgan, Mark Lewis, Debbie Nicholls, Ben Saunders and Kerry Williams.
