Charity

As a family business, we understand that when something bad happens to someone we love, it can affect the lives of everyone around them. Dealing with cancer is often the toughest challenge a family will ever face and that’s why it’s so very important for patients and their families to have as much support as possible.

Marie Curie Cancer Care helps thousands of people across the UK every year and supports families by offering expert care, emotional support and guidance - all whilst tirelessly researching and campaigning towards improving care further. This is why, here at Bargain Buys, we are proud to announce that Marie Curie is our company charity of choice.

Throughout the year we’ll make it our mission to raise money for this great cause, in the hope that we too can make life a little easier for families dealing with cancer. Marie Curie will use money raised to help terminally ill people and their loved ones make the most of the time they have left together and will support them every step of the way.

This amazing charity looks after families just like ours during the most difficult time of their lives. That’s why Bargain Buys wants to show our support and say a heartfelt thank you for all of the amazing work Marie Curie does by making them our official charity of 2015.
