Let the Battleshops Commence!

On 23rd November staff from Tesco head office in Welwyn Garden City will be working in partnership with four Isabel Hospice charity shops in a bid to raise as much money as they can for the charity in one day.


The challenge is called ‘Battleshops’ and will take place on Black Friday, seeing Tesco donate products for sale to raise funds for Isabel Hospice, as well as field four teams of colleagues to volunteer in the Isabel shops in Fretherne Road, Stonehills, Haldens and in the Hatfield galleria.


Lesley Glyn Isabel Hospice Interim Head of Retail said: “This is going to be a really fun day, both for the regular hospice volunteers, staff and our shoppers. We love the idea of Battleshops and as Tesco will be bringing in some of their own stock to sell, shoppers will be able to get some fabulous bargains, whilst raising money for a great cause – Isabel Hospice.”


James Shelford, one of the Tesco organisers from their General Merchandise team, added: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Isabel Hospice for our Black Friday Battleshops event. Four teams from our Welwyn offices will be donating Tesco stock to sell at bargain prices and volunteering in Isabel Hospice stores in order to raise as much as possible. Come along on the day to find deals on products spanning Christmas, Gardening, Recreation and much more.”
