Lifelites - who are based just around the corner from the store - provides fun and educational technology to the 9,000 children who stay, play and learn in all 49 of the baby and children’s hospices throughout the British Isles, including several in London.
Simone Enefer-Doy, who was at the store to launch the partnership, said that the charities work relies on donations, “This wouldn’t be possible without support like this: each Lifelites package costs around £9,000 a year to install and maintain.”
Simone also said that she was delighted with the reception the charity had already received from the staff: “We’re off to a great start with a donation from some collection tins and some goods for our recent charity bike ride getting the ball rolling.
“The team here have been so enthusiastic already: it’s our job now to help them make the most of this opportunity and work together to raise as much money as possible.”
