DEBENHAMS employees in Glasgow have rallied round and played their part in raising £2million to provide lifelong support to wounded, injured or sick service personnel and veterans.

Debenhams in Glasgow helped the company reach the £2m milestone following a dedicated four-year drive that has included marathons, Tough Mudder challenges, bake offs, bike rides and raffles.

The store, at the St Enoch Centre, raised a grand sum of £5,497. Funds were raised through regular bucket collections in the store, as well as customers having the option of adding £1 to their bill to donate to Help for Heroes.

Bryan Rice, store manager at Debenhams in Glasgow, said: “We are delighted to have raised the £2m. Everyone in store has been a passionate supporter of Help for Heroes and this milestone is a testament to their hard work and dedication.”

The incredible fundraising efforts taken on by the 27,000 Debenhams staff around the country is helping veterans to live independent and fulfilling lives. From national collections to 350-mile bike rides, every single penny raised has helped veterans and service personnel reach their potential, regain their purpose and have a positive impact on society.

In addition to the fundraising, Debenhams has launched a new in-store get-together programme that provides a safe space for family members of those affected by military service to meet up and find local support networks.
