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!
