We had a good chat with Baljinder Bhurjee (also known as Burj), one of our Regional Managers, about the unstoppable energy that powers our commitment to make a positive impact on the communities that we live in.
Hello yourselves, I’m really proud of the journey we’ve gone through when it comes to our charity work so I’m thrilled to talk all about it!
We’ve made a commitment to donate up to 1% of our products each year to help make a difference to charities and organisations who need it the most.
This scheme allows colleagues to have their funds matched up to £300/€300* for any money they raise for a charity. It doesn’t matter if it’s for a sky dive or a bake sale - we want to support the causes that matter most to colleagues.
Volunteering can touch people’s lives in the most fantastic ways and can go a long way towards making a positive impact on your local community. We offer all DFS colleagues the opportunity to take 1 paid volunteering day each year.
‘Give me Five’ is our in-store prize draw, where customers donate £5 to be in with a chance of winning the cost of their order for free.
DFS places great value on charity, and the BBC Children in Need relationship is an integral part of this. Through conversations with our people, we came to the realisation we were collectively keen to build on the positive progress over the past seven years and decided to channel the raised funds towards a shared priority: mental health.
DFS places great value on charity and the BBC Children in Need relationship is a big part of this. Through conversations with our people, we decided to channel the raised funds towards a shared priority: mental health.
As a result, over three years we’ve supported 10,000 children and young people grappling with severe mental health challenges. This support ensures their safety, enhances their emotional well-being, and offers invaluable one-on-one assistance and specialised counselling. I’ve got to say it really does make me so proud to work at DFS, and even more proud of our people!
