Highlights of how Roys has helped charities in 2020

How we helped charities & communities in 2020

During 2020 Roys is pleased to have been able to help a large number of charities and good causes both locally and nationally. The total number of causes Roys has been able to help is 143, ranging from air ambulances to rescued animals and everything in between. Around half of the causes helped were through raffle prize donations, meaning many of the donations will have hopefully gone on to help raise even more money for charity.

In total we've raised over £33,000 through our MADL donations, plastic bag charges, raffle prize donations & other money raising such as wearing fancy dress on special days & in store collections.

The 5p plastic bag charge has raised £15,692, going to several charities. Our stores have different charities of the year voted on by the staff and those charities will receive a donation equal to the amount that store has raised. In total 10 charities will receive the following donations; £4939.91 to Faith Animal Rescue (raised by our Wroxham Food Hall, fuel station, DIY Centre, head office and Norwich distribution centre), £1950.20 to Norfolk Accident Rescue Service (raised by our Wroxham Department Store, Garden Centre and Roys Toys), £3617.54 to the Friends of Harford Manor School (raised by our Bowthorpe store), £917.31 to Beccles Lions Club (raised by our Beccles store), £374.62 to St Martin's House (raised by our Dereham store), £1264.50 to Norfolk & Waveney MIND (raised by our Magdalen Street store), £357.35 to Friends of Horsey Seals (raised by our North Walsham store), £900.43 to The Bridge Project (raised by our Sudbury store), £968.97 to Nelson's Journey (raised by our Thetford store) and £401.33 to East Anglian Air Ambulance (raised by our Highway store).

Our Making A Difference Locally Fund (MADL) has helped 24 great causes with donations ranging from £100 to £1,000. In this scheme money is put into Roys' MADL fund based on sales of selected grocery products sold in Roys stores and then used to help local charities and good causes. Donations from this scheme include; £1000 to Priscilla Bacon Lodge new hospice appeal, £500 to Sea Palling Lifeboats, £1000 to Norman Lamb's mental health charity, and, £500 each to Wroxham & Hoveton Good Neigbour Scheme foodbank and Falcon Junior School foodbank.

In store actions have raised nearly £5,000, with staff and customers coming together to help several great charities. Much of this money comes from collection pots in store, but events such as Children in Need (£1,206), Christmas Jumper Day (£489 to Save The Children) and Wear It Pink (£285 to Breast Cancer Now) are also very significant.

More information about how Roys helps charites is available on our Charity & Community page. If you would like to be considered for the MADL fund please contact enquiries@roys.co.uk telling us a bit about your charity or project and how you would like help.
