Supporting our local community

As a local convenience store, we want to be part of the community we’re in. It’s really important for us to not just serve you as customers, but to make a difference in the schools your kids go to, or the sports clubs that keep you active. 

From raffle donations to long-term relationships with organisations such as Dove House and the local foodbanks, our teams always go above and beyond to support local causes. 

Hull Animal Welfare Trust

Our long running relationship with Hull Animal Welfare Trust means we support them with staff volunteering, clothes bank collections points and multiple fundraising activities through the year.

Fitmums and Friends

Fitmums and Friends are a sociable and supportive running and walking club organised by volunteers. You don’t have to be a mum or fit – men, dads, grandparents are all welcome. We have a long-running partnership with Fitmums and Friends providing them with ‘safe havens’ at our stores.  

Big Local Harvest

In partnership with local foodbanks, our Big Local Harvest runs each year in autumn to gather as many items as possible to help the foodbanks with their winter demands. Whatever our customers and colleagues donate during this period, which usually runs for one month, we will double!  

Supporting the Armed Forces

Hull 4 Heroes is a military based charity that aims to ensure a veteran’s transition back into civilian life and regular employment is as seamless as possible. We have a long-running partnership with the charity and run regular fund-raising campaigns. 

As part of the wider Sewell Group, we’ve also pledged to support the armed forces community by signing the Armed Forces Covenant. This is something we’ve always been passionate about, and signing the covenant has reinforced our commitment to help those who have served, and their families, to find employment.

Yorkshire Air Ambulance

We have supported Yorkshire Air Ambulance for many years – from jumping out of airplanes to providing a spot for ongoing clothing banks at our stores.  

In 2022, we were presented with an award which recognised our teams’ fundraising efforts. 

"Sewell on the go are a long-standing supporter of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, we are so very grateful for the ongoing support we have received from the company and its colleagues"

Lin Stead, Regional Fundraising Manager

Dove House

Every year, our teams take part in Dove House’s It’s a Knockout competition which helps to raise £1000’s for the hospice. Along with this, we regularly run internal raffles across the Sewell Group and dedicate a month to fundraising with our store teams. 

Donate with Your Rewards

Your Rewards is much more than just your average loyalty scheme, because every time you use Your Rewards card in store, we’ll donate to a local charitable organisation. 

It’s never been easier to support your local community. 

Other community news

Along with our long-standing partnerships, our teams regularly hold fundraisers like bake-offs and other activities to support lots of local community initiatives.

We’re always looking for new and innovative ways to reduce our impact on the environment and support our local community. From beehives and planting trees and wild flowers, to working with local initiatives like Susdrainable to collect rainwater help reduce the risk of flooding and introducing apps like Gander so our customers can save money and reduce food waste.
