Over the next three years, Wilko has joined forces with three charity partners to create one programme designed to support families when they need it the most.
All the charities tackle a key social issue that Wilko’s customers are often faced with in everyday family life. The funding goes towards helping families in the UK now, when they need it the most.
Whether it’s a diagnosis in the family that’s potentially life threatening, or really struggling to make ends meet, Wilko hopes that through this programme it can raise enough money to make a real difference.
The charity partners that Wilko have chosen are:
At Alzheimer’s Society, they believe passionately that life doesn’t end when dementia begins. They are on hand for anyone affected by dementia, and they do everything they can to keep people with dementia connected to their lives and the people who matter most.

Save the Children
Save the Children give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. When crisis strikes, Save the Children are always among the first to respond and the last to leave. They do whatever it takes to save children, transforming their lives and the future we share.
