Below is an example of what your donation could achieve:


We have a rich history of major support from key figures in the retail industry including Sir Hugh Fraser of House of Fraser, and the Moores family, founders of the Littlewoods Empire, which enabled the charity to grow and develop. This philanthropy has continued to the present day and is helping to shape future developments such as redeveloping our Crookfur Estate. 

If you would like to shape the future of retailTRUST please contact the Fundraising team who would be delighted to discuss these opportunities with you.

Trusts and Foundations 

The support of Trusts and Foundations has always been very important to the work of retailTRUST. Funding has enabled us to redevelop our cottageHOMES estates, support staffing projects and implement innovative new initiatives. The continued support of these institutions has helped many retail employees in the past through to the present day. 


By supporting retailTRUST, you can make a difference to your own staff as well as the lives of many other retail employees. We are delighted to receive support from corporates in many areas of the Trust, whether it's a one-off contribution or ongoing support of retailRIGHT, retailHUB or cottageHOMES.

Our work extends into every community and town in the UK. We can ensure your support has a focused impact in areas where your business has a presence.
