Charity says it with chocolate

Have your say

John Lewis Sheffield has launched a campaign in support of Save the Children, as part of a nationwide initiative to raise more than £50,000 for the charity this Christmas.

The city centre branch is selling chocolate hearts, with 100 per cent of the sale going towards the charity’s Eat Sleep Learn Play programme – a crisis grants programme for families struggling to provide the basics for their young children. Customers who contribute will be given a gift tag to place on the store’s Christmas Giving Tree.

“We are really proud to support Save the Children this Christmas,” said James Prince, branch manager of John Lewis Sheffield.

“The Belgian chocolate hearts will make fantastic festive gifts and knowing the entire £5 sale price will be donated to charity is a gift in itself.”

Rona Blackwood, strategy manager at Save the Children added: “This will help us to provide educational toys for some of the UK’s poorest children.”
