The Bridge for Heroes has been announced as Dobbies’ new Local Charity Partner.

The charity was founded in 2010, and seeks to support the Armed Forces community, veterans and their family.

The link-up is an nine-month partnership that gives Bridge for Heroes the ability to fundraise as much as possible in store, with the opportunity to host fundraising days, depending on store availability.

The Bridge for Heroes has an additional benefit, being the first Local Charity Partner to benefit from the 5p carrier bag charge, which is thought to give fund-raising an extra boost. Last year’s LCP, The Norfolk Hospice - Tapping House, successfully raised over £450.

Dobbies also managed to raise over £171,000 for the Teenage Cancer Trust over the last Christmas period.
