Supporting charities on our doorstep

While preparations are underway for our FAST Road to Rudridge fundraising challenge for the Stroke Association, our individual branches have also chosen to support four different local charities this year.

Our stores in Brentford, Farnham, Gravesend and Horsham will be holding a variety of fundraising activities to raise much needed cash for four charities, each located on their doorstep.

Committed to generating funds for nationwide causes such as the Stroke Association, we also think it's important to support local charitable projects which help the communities around our branches across the South East of England.

Our chosen charities

The team in Brentford will be helping Ealing-based children's charity, The Log Cabin. Our Farnham branch is fundraising for Aldershot-based youth charity Step by Step. Gravesend is supporting local hospice ellenor, and the Horsham team is pledging its time to the mental health charity Heads On. The sheer range of worthy causes – from children's groups to end of life care – highlights the incredible work that happens within our regions.

The Log Cabin 

Brentford's charity of choice helps children and young people with additional needs or disabilities, by providing them with a place to socialise, grow and have fun together. Being completely inclusive, it welcomes siblings and local children to encourage friendships. The group runs after school clubs, play schemes and counselling services.

Step by Step 

Our Farnham branch has selected a charity which works to prevent homelessness by helping young people going through hard times. Providing accommodation and personal development opportunities, young people are encouraged to reach their full potential.


Located in Gravesend, the charity cares for people of all ages, whether they're located in the hospice, a care home, hospital or in their own home. It works to help families facing terminal illness through pain relief, palliative care, respite and bereavement support. Its mission is to enable people to make the most of the time they have.

Heads On

This charity, supported by our Horsham branch, is run by Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. Its aim is to assist Sussex residents who struggle with mental health, providing services to help them stay active and get involved in their communities via funding for special projects, patient and family support, and pioneering research.

We're delighted to be able to champion these four incredible charities in our regions and look forward to handing over four cheques after a bumper year of fundraising. Keep an eye on our website and social media pages for details of what's happening at each branch.
