M&S Raise Incredible £15,000!

Marks and Spencer Tunbridge Wells (Royal Victoria Place) have been supporting Tree of Hope as their Charity of the Year for the past three years.

The team in store are totally dedicated to supporting Tree of Hope in transforming the lives of seriously ill and disabled children around the UK. This year Marks and Spencer have showed their amazing commitment by smashing their £15,000 fundraising target for the year! £15,000 was a challenge set by themselves to help them raise more money than ever before and make an incredible difference to Tree of Hope.

There wasn’t anything the team didn’t get involved in – Dragon Boat Racing, Dine and Donate, knitting chicks, volunteering and running at our Starfish Race Events, running half marathons, staff raffles, in-store cycling challenges and transforming our board room into something wonderful – the list goes on!

Being a charity of the year is not just about raising funds but, also about the spreading the word about Tree of Hope. All the team at M&S are often talking about the work we do to support children in getting the vital medical treatment, therapy and equipment they need, to their customers, friends and family, and rest of the local community which helps us grow even more so.

The partnership between Tree of Hope and Tunbridge Wells M&S has been invaluable to us, and we couldn’t be more grateful for their support.

“We initially supported Tree of Hope because we recognised that our assistance would have a huge impact on this charity but we could never have anticipated how the partnership would develop. Almost every member of our team has been inspired to get involved in some way with the charity. From volunteering their time, running marathons, sponsored cycles, selling raffle tickets, competing in Europe’s largest Dragon Boat Race and most recently cooking up an Indian Feast for 40 as part of the charity’s Dine and Donate campaign, the charity has motivated the whole team to play their part. Knowing we’ve helped Tree of Hope to support the families of almost 1,000 disabled and seriously ill children is incredibly rewarding and we’ve had an immense amount of fun along the way. ” Simon, Commercial Operations Section Manager at Marks and Spencer, Tunbridge Wells (Royal Victoria Place)

So, not only have they raised Tree of Hope £15,000 in one year, and spread the name of Tree of Hope to hundreds, even thousands of people but, we are also incredibly pleased to announce that the store have chosen Tree of Hope as their Charity of the Year for the fourth year running.

We would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff members who have donated, volunteered and spread the word about the work we do. We are looking forward to the year ahead!
