Welcome to Sainsbury’s Help Centre

What charities do you support and do you donate prizes, money or time to charity?

We certainly do.  We focus on health, food, families and children, with a particular emphasis on healthy eating and active lifestyles. A good example is our Active Kids scheme, where we’ve now donated over £100 million of sports equipment, kit and coaching to UK schools, nurseries, Scout and Girl Guide groups since its launch in 2005.

Our corporate charity partner is Comic Relief. We’ve already helped to raise over £30 million for the charity and are committed to supporting their activities until 2017. Sainsbury’s is also one of the few supermarkets to regularly donate food to charitable organisations, including FareShare and the Salvation Army.

All our stores also have a Local Charity of the Year they support which is voted by our customers. Click here to read more info! Our stores also have a small budget for making donations of raffle prizes or vouchers and can sometimes help with events in store such as bag packing. Click here to contact your local store, by phone only, for more information.

It's all part of our aim to make a positive difference in our communities.
