Due to COVID-19, many families sought Marie Curie for crucial end-of-life care and bereavement support. Superdrug rose to ensure their nurses, hospices and support line could continue to be there for the needy. A 180 Challenge was launched as a tie-in to A.S. Watson Group’s 180th anniversary. Superdrug colleagues completed challenges by raising £38,000 for Marie Curie, providing 211 nights of nursing care for families in need.
During the pandemic, The Perfume Shop injected a dose of freshness to colleagues in-store or distancing at home through giving them the option to continue learning and exploring new online learning modules. Each Monday on The Nose (the employee communications platform), a “Learning Checklist” with selected modules will be offered to empower colleagues.
To fight against the pandemic, The Perfume Shop was determined to put smiles back on everyone’s faces with the launching of the TPS 180 Club. Such was a cause to sign people up, each to either run, walk or jog 180 km to raise money for Operation Smile UK. Over £6,000 has already been swiftly raised, and the operation is ongoing throughout the year!
A highlight in the UK’s fundraising calendar, Save The Children’s Christmas Jumper Day is an initiative that The Perfume Shop and its customers love to get involved with. Teams donated to wear their colourful Christmas Jumpers for the day!
A.S. Watson Group, the world’s largest international health and beauty retailer, celebrated its 180th Anniversary today by hosting a 5G-enabled virtual cocktail event, gathering CEOs of the world’s top consumer goods companies* and over 300 business partners and charity partners from all around the world.
Last Christmas, A.S. Watson Europe Office took the traditional game of Bingo and gave it a festive twist. Colleagues were invited to complete various themed challenges over the month which promotes physical, mental, as well as social wellbeing, to make sure they took some time for themselves and their families over the holidays.
Superdrug and Savers have partnered with Marie Curie, the UK’s leading terminal illness charity since 2013. In November 2020, they have reached an amazing milestone of a combined £8.5 Million raised so far, funding the equivalent of 425,000 hours of Marie Curie nursing care to support those affected by terminal illness and their families.
Throughout the partnership, Superdrug has driven various fundraising activities, and earlier in 2020 Superdrug colleagues got behind the “2.6 Challenge” completing challenges based on the numbers 26 and 2.6, raising £22,000 in total, the largest company contribution to the “2.6 Challenge”.
