Carriers for Causes

Customers shopping in-store

We’re really pleased that we have our ‘Carrier for Causes’ grants of up to £2,000 available to give good causes within a two mile radius of any of our stores. The grants will be available to support projects that benefit local communities - helping to improve lives and local places.

Our ‘Carriers for Causes’ grants are funded through the money raised from the 5p bag charge in One Stop Stores in England, Wales and Scotland.

The types of projects funded will be very broad and will cover the direct costs needed to deliver the project, this could be buying litter pickers and bags for a community clean-up day, plants, spades and forks to plant up a new community garden, the cost of a minibus for a day trip for a community group or the materials needed to paint a room at a local hospice.

One Stop has partnered with the charity Groundwork to deliver this scheme, to find out more and apply for funding please click on the link below:
