We would like to officially thank all at Dunelm for their invaluable help and support during our wonderful partnership.

Their fantastic staff have raised approximately £880,000 through a variety of different activities including sponsored bike rides, runs and treks; abseiling off of buildings; ‘Bake Offs’; raffles; crafts; dinner dances and much, much more.

If this wasn’t enough, they have also supported our local Home-Starts with donating their time through volunteering as well as donating ex-display duvets, pillows and sheets for our Home-Start families to make sure those who needed additional support were able to get it.

The money Dunelm has raised will be used very carefully in a number of ways enable us to start looking at new innovative projects such as LENA a language development project, as well as continuing our school readiness programme, Big Hopes Big Future, for local Home-Starts to roll out to our families making those early years count.
