We are happy to receive requests to support local causes and regularly make smaller donations to sports teams, fund raisers, churches, individual sponsorship requests and charitable organisations. Please send your request in writing to our head office at, The Bakers Yard, Sawmill Lane, Helmsley, York, YO62 5DQ.

We also ask our teams to choose a single charity to give our support to throughout the year. We arrange a number of events towards this charity, and our shops and individuals organise their own fundraising action to make additional contributions to the selected charity. This year's nominated charity is the Kidney Research UK.

Approximately 0.2% of our annual turnover is passed to charity with the support of our customers and teams.
