We’re committed to assisting as many people as we can to know what it’s like to fall asleep feeling safe, warm and dry; to wake up surrounded by the things they love; and to welcome family and friends to a home they feel proud of. We do this through partnering with national and local organisations, colleague volunteering and fundraising and engaging with policy makers.
We are also launching a network of foundations funded by annual Kingfisher corporate donations and local employee and customer fundraising, which will be supporting charities who provide, maintain, repair and improve housing and community spaces. You can read more about our retail banner foundations at B&Q in the Community, Screwfix Foundation and Brico Dépôt Romania.
Our colleagues spent over 19,600 working hours volunteering in their local communities on nearly 100 projects, which improved homes and community spaces. The total value of employee time (including volunteering hours and management costs) was £543,000.
