We’re celebrating the King’s Coronation with £25,000 in community donations
With the nation set to celebrate the King’s Coronation, we’re supporting local communities across the UK. To celebrate the historic event, we’ve provided 100 community groups each with £250 donations through their ‘Community Partnership Programme’, making a total donation of £25,000.
To commemorate the event, we’ve also donated a bench to the residents of Samuel Hobson House, a care home in Stoke-on-Trent. The bench was made from recycled plastic which was collected from our stores and sorted by our Distribution Centre Recycling Team. The plastic was originally used in flowerpots in-stores, but through our partnership with Veolia the finished article was created.
We’ve got many ongoing community initiatives throughout the year, working with both national and local charity partners. These partnerships and initiatives have seen us fundraise and donate more than £10 Million over the last 10 years to good causes.
Jack Taylor, One Stop’s Community and Partnership Manager said: “We look forward to seeing how these donations will support events up and down the country, both big and small. The King’s Coronation will bring the whole country together, and we’re thrilled to be able to offer our support to those looking to celebrate this historic event.”
The importance and celebratory nature of this event will also be marked across all our stores as well as online, with a coronation menu added to all the online platforms we’re on. We’ve also worked with Deliveroo to create an exclusive coronation bundle with Becky Scones, One Stop Double Cream and One Stop Strawberry Jam all for just £4.50.
The offers and promotions in-store are equally appealing and suitable for the occasion with a wide selection of BBQ meats, buns, sauces as well as desserts and refreshments such as 3 for £5.50 on ready to drink cocktails.
One Stop’s Head of Customer and Business Support, Nigel Prendergast, added: “We will have specially designed displays and offers in-store and online, helping our customers celebrate the occasion to the fullest. As well as this we’ve created an interactive Coronation themed game on our website, with a London trip for two to be won.”
