Featured partner story.
Wilko brings affordable micro-donations to customers with Pennies, supporting families in need.
Wilko rolled out Pennies in their in-store retail environment in July 2022, after a short pilot period. Having noticed a significant decline in the amount they were raising for charity through cash donations, they knew they needed a step-change in their customer fundraising – and Pennies provided the answer.
Pennies worked closely with key stakeholders across the Wilko team, and their payments and retail systems partners Worldpay and GK Software respectively, to ensure a smooth implementation that engaged the team at all levels.
This led to a hugely successful launch, with 2.8million donations made in the first 4 months alone. Donations support Alzheimer’s Society, Save the Children and Teenage Cancer Trust – who together make up the business’s Together For Families initiative.
The impact for Wilko’s 3 long-standing charity partners is already being felt, and is only set to increase in the coming months, and years.
