Supporting our communities

Our aims

We're proud of the close links we forge between our Partners and local schools, charities and organisations. And wherever we do business, at home or abroad, we work with communities to make a difference. That's why:

  • Our Community Matters programme in our shops continues to support local charities and community groups.
  • We aim to give at least 1% of pre-tax profits to community initiatives.
  • We will continue to seek out projects that support the John Lewis Foundation at home and abroad.

If you'd like to nominate a good cause for Community Matters please complete the nomination form and take it to the Customer Services department.

The charities we're supporting from May 2015 – July 2015 are:

  • Holly Locke Brain Tumour charity
  • Holly Locke was a 22-year old local girl who very sadly passed away in November 2014, after suffering a second brain tumour. All the money raised will go directly to the Brain Tumour charity where it will be put towards research and will also help raise awareness of the condition.

  • Peterborough Olympic Swimming Group
  • A swimming group for local people with learning disabilities, the group allows them to train, work as a team, build self pride, provide a network for parents and provide opportunities to compete. The money raised will help send a team to the UK National Special Olympic Summer Games 2017.

  • Leprosy Mission
  • The Leprosy Mission is a Peterborough-based charity that raises funds to support people across Africa and Asia. The money raised will help provide protective footwear, support self-help groups and train health workers.
