We’re committed to making a difference in the local community, which is why we have a Community Life Champion in every store.
Christine Baldwin, who works at our Bolton store, was one of our first Community Life Champions, and has achieved a huge amount during the last four years – working with local schools and community groups, leading a range of local community initiatives and working with other businesses to achieve more together.
