Retailer calls on customers to deliver summer joy to schools

Dunelm is calling on its Cheltenham and Gloucester customers to support local schools in need by donating essential supplies.

For the first time, Dunelm, the UK's leading homewares retailer, has launched a Delivering Joy Local Schools Appeal aiming to help schools and nurseries in need this summer.

The community-focused campaign builds on the success of Dunelm's annual Christmas Delivering Joy campaign which last year saw customers generously donate over 125,000 gifts to local communities across the UK.

With the Home of Homes now set on extending the joy into summertime, they are appealing to local residents for their support.

Cheltenham's and Gloucester's Dunelm branches are calling on customers to donate much-needed items, such as stationery, books, art materials and calculators. Other requested items include playground and board games, alongside blankets and sensory toys.

Customers can participate by simply bringing their contributions to their local Dunelm store and placing them into the designated collection trolleys before Thursday, July 18.

The trolleys will then be distributed directly to local schools, ensuring all of the much-needed items and supplies are delivered and ready to go ahead of the new school year starting.

Paul Sullivan, head of circular communities at Dunelm, said: "We are thrilled to have launched our Delivering Joy Local Schools Appeal for the first time - particularly after the incredible impact that the Christmas Delivering Joy campaign has had over the past four years.

"We're already seeing communities across the country getting involved and can't wait to see all the generous donations put to good use.

"After being placed into our in-store trolleys we'll be taking all contributions directly to the schools in need."
