Along with 12 other charities our reader Luke would like to point out that Marks and Spencers supports the anti-landlord charity Shelter.
“I’ve just popped out of my office to grab a sandwich from M&S and it would appear that a number of their products (in the sandwich section, at least) are having 5% of the cost donated to Shelter! Perhaps it’s worth letting members know to avoid such items and possibly even question M&S’s motives for this. I feel re-education is required.”
The M&S website says:
“Offer some shelter this Christmas
Twelve years with Shelter
We’ve been working in partnership with housing and homelessness charity Shelter for more than 12 years and, thanks to the generosity of our customers, we’ve raised £2.8 million through the sale* of our festive Food on the Move range of sandwiches, rolls and drinks.
Shelter’s free national helpline is open all year round to offer expert advice, support and legal aid to anyone struggling with issues related to housing and homelessness, no matter what their situation. It is manned by experts who will listen to and support people, and can help them take action or negotiate on their behalf. Just one call to Shelter can be the difference between somebody losing their home and keeping it.
How you can get involved
Five per cent of the sales from our Festive Collection for Shelter will go to help people struggling with homelessness and poor housing, so all you have to do to help is head to your nearest store and choose a festive drink, sandwich or snack. Right now, the money raised from these sales helps fund all calls answered by the Shelter helpline over Christmas.”
