About the partnership
In January 2020, Wickes launched their charity partnership, to support our work to make sure all young people are supported and empowered, whatever the challenges.
With over 230 stores across the UK, Wickes are one of the largest suppliers of DIY and home improvement products.
Inspired by our mission, Wickes decided to join our fight for young people's mental health because they recognise the importance of mental health at every age, and especially for young people. Kelly, from the Wickes head office says, 'I am so proud to be a part of an organisation who have chosen to support YoungMinds as their charity partner. Mental health should not be a taboo subject at any age. The emotional wellbeing of children and young people is just as important as their physical health and it's brilliant that a greater awareness of this is happening."
Wickes will be running an array of activities, from fundraising in stores, to raffles, dinners, golf days and quizzes.
Here's how you can get involved:
- Check out their JustGiving page to support their fundraising efforts, or start a fundraising page of your own if you're hosting a Wickes fundraising event.
- Wickes have also joined forces with fundraising platform Savoo. Use Savoo's search engine and they'll donate 1p to YoungMinds for every search you make.
- Shop online with Savoo's voucher codes and deals and they'll donate to YoungMinds at no extra cost to you. To get started, register for an account on the Savoo website and select YoungMinds as your chosen charity.
