The initiative took place across all 24 branches of Abokado from 7am until 8pm on December 15.
It was the ninth year that Abokado has partnered with homelessness charity, St Mungo’s at Christmas to raise funds to support their work.
Abokado’s director Mark Lilley said, “This is our ninth year supporting St Mungo’s at Christmas and we are proud to be continuing this incredibly worthwhile tradition. With temperatures having dropped below freezing over the past few days never are people who are homeless more in our hearts and minds. I’m deeply humbled by how much our teams and customers get behind this fun charity event to support St Mungo’s excellent work. I’m sure Friday will prove to be yet another hit.”
Lizzi Hollis-Butcher, corporate partnerships manager at St Mungo's, said, “Abokado has been a great supporter of St Mungo’s over the past nine years We are truly grateful for the thousands of pounds that their fundraising days have raised and thank them and their customers for their amazing support, which goes to help make a difference to many people’s lives.”
