Charity work

Supplies donated to Brixham Food Bank

Thanks to donations from our lovely customers, we’ve sent off a box full of supplies just like the one below to Brixham Food Bank each week during the lockdown. 

Did you know you can donate to Brixham Food Bank via Galleon Stores? All you need to do is arrange with us to credit your account up to a value of your choice. We will then arrange supplies up to this value, to be delivered and donated on your behalf.

Alternatively, you can ask to round up your bill and we will use the remaining value towards a donation.  

For more information, give us a call on 01803 842148 or contact us here.

A big thank you to customers who have donated to the Rowcroft Hospice collection tin in-store. Rowcroft got in touch to let us know that over the last few months, our customers have raised over £30 in total, raising vital funds to help them continue providing care to patients and families across South Devon.

Charity collection total – this year so far

Since the beginning of this year, we’re delighted to share that our in-store collection tins have raised over £170 for our chosen local charities RNLI Torbay and Rowcroft Hospice, in addition to national charity CHICKS.

CHICKS is a children’s charity providing free respite breaks to disadvantaged children all over the UK. To find out more about the local charities we support, click here.

Funds raised for Rowcroft

A big thank you to our customers who have helped raise a total of £32.50 at the January 2018 count in aid of Rowcroft Hospice, by donating via our collection boxes.

Our customers keep on giving – a big thank you!

A very big thank you to all our customers who have kindly donated to the money boxes in store. In January we sent the donations off to be counted, and thanks to you Galleon Stores & Galmpton Post Office have raised over £100 for CHICKS, Rowcroft Hospice and ShelterBox!

Charity support April 2016 update

In only the first few months of this year, as part of an ongoing commitment to supporting a whole host of local charities, our customers have raised over £120 for RNLI Lifeboats, Rowcroft Hospice and CHICKS: a national children’s charity providing free respite breaks to disadvantaged children all over the UK!

This year, the support has also been more far reaching. With the help of our customers, a sum of money was raised from the purchase of candles to support the current refugee crisis. In the picture below, the money is being handed over to the Salvimento Moritimo Humanitario – the Basque Lifeguard team. The team are working tirelessly on and around the Greek island of Chios, and the money has been used to purchase fuel and medical supplies.
