Since 2017, Shelter and B&Q have embarked on an ambitious strategic partnership with the shared belief that everyone in the UK should have a home they feel good about.
Thanks to B&Q’s support we have been able to double the number of DIY and skills advisers to seven, so we now cover London, Birmingham, Bristol, Sheffield and Manchester. Funds from B&Q have also provided further funding for frontline services around the UK. B&Q colleagues up and down the country have been getting involved in the partnership through fundraising in store and volunteering in Shelter’s network of shops and services.
For Christmas 2018 B&Q will be taking the partnership even further by selling an adorable Festive Fairy doll, with a minimum of £2 from every sale going towards supporting our frontline advice and support services. Set to raise more than £25,000, the fairy will make a real difference to families facing homelessness this Christmas. B&Q’s Shelter Fairy costs £10 and is available at B&Q stores nationwide. Pick yourself up some festive cheer for your home and help support our life-changing work.
