Help us to give back – The Giving Box
This year we’re giving back to the wonderful charities who work so hard to deliver vital services in our local community. We know that this has been a difficult time for everyone and charities have been among the hardest hit so they need our generosity more than ever. That’s why we’re supporting The Mayor of Southwark’s Common Good Trust, Surrey Docks Farm and Time & Talents
If you can, please help us to help them by showing your support when you next visit us.
You can find our giant giving box at The Range entrance. Using contactless payment, you’ll be able to donate to these amazing charities and make a difference in our community.
Thank you! Our giving box has a special way of showing just how much it appreciates your donation!
Get to know our chosen charities below:
The Mayor of Southwark’s Common Good Trust
The Mayor of Southwark’s Common Good Trust, is a local charity for people in Southwark, from cradle to grave. It has provided support for over 40 years, for items such as household goods, school uniform and baby essentials that are essential for meeting basic needs to help the client to live in dignity.
The work is carried out entirely by volunteers, independent from the council, their work relies on donations from the public and our fundraising efforts. During the pandemic the team provided food hampers and shopping vouchers to various clients who were in need.
Surrey Docks Farm
Behind the gates the Farm delivers a range of educational community projects and workshops to engage those who would benefit most; including children and young people and adults with learning disabilities. Participants take part in animal care, food growing, healthy eating, rural crafts, and environmental projects; spending as much time as possible getting active outdoors. The Farm gave away over £800 worth of food grown on site to local families in need during the first lockdown.
With your support the team look forward to reopening in the future to reach even more people and provide green recovery for thousands of people post the pandemic.

During the pandemic the covid-19 emergency relief food hub is delivering essential food supplies weekly to those local households most in need. Your donations are vital to keep the operations running through the winter and we're grateful for any donations.
