They’re a competitive bunch and the Area Managers are in constant competition to raise the most for Poundland’s amazing charity partners.

Thomas and his network of community champions generate fresh ideas for charity events and initiatives and catch up monthly to plan their next fundraising activity.

From sponsored head shaves, to 5k runs and walks to local litter picking, each area drives support across its network of stores.
As well as raising as much money as possible for our charity partners, Thomas and his team work hard to make getting involved fun and engaging for their colleagues and customers. He also makes sure that everyone knows exactly how the money they have raised is helping to support their local communities.
