Did you know, we offer charity discount?

If you’re a community group or charity organising an event we can offer up to 30% off your purchase.


How does it work?

  1. Contact your local store manager with details of your event, accompanying evidence and the catering support you require
  2. The manager will then calculate the full retail value of your food requirements and offer discount as follows:

    – Retail spends over £50 will receive 10% discount

    – Retail spends over £100 will receive 20% discount

    – Retail spends over £200 will receive 30% discount

  3. Organise your own collection of the products on the day of your event with the store manager.


We’re keen to support recognised group initiatives and charities local to the areas in which we’re represented.

We can’t unfortunately, support appeals from individuals and don’t give to international or national charities.

In short, as a local family business we look to support the local community.


  • Play Groups
  • Mothers & Toddlers

We commit a percentage of net profit each year and can alternatively offer support in kind, with donations of discounted food for event catering as detailed previously.

In all cases please write to Dicksons Philanthropy Committee on letterhead, briefly describing your organisation, the project and its benefit to your group.
