We’re delighted to have been chosen as the Charity of the Year for the newly opened M&S Foodhall in Southfields. Over the next 12 months the Southfields M&S team will undertake a fundraising campaign to support BeyondAutism with a number of activities and events ranging from sponsored walks and runs, to bag packing, cake sales and in-store raffles.
The support from M&S staff and customers will raise funds towards our Tram House Appeal to build a new world-class school for our students and create new, urgently required specialist places for children and young people with autism across London.
M&S Store Manager Andrew Stables, said:
“Each year, every M&S store in the country makes a commitment to supporting a worthwhile local cause. The team at M&S Southfields wanted to choose a charity that is close to the hearts of both M&S staff, and our customers. BeyondAutism is a fantastic organisation that works at the very heart of the community, providing a range of specialist services to support young people and their families. We look forward to working with BeyondAutism over the coming year, and hope that our customers will get behind the fundraising drive by supporting some of the activities we have lined up”.
