    Just when we thought we couldn’t love John Lewis any more, they announced a £1.4million donation to around 3,000 local charities – all helping those most in need during the pandemic.

    This brings the total amount of support to local communities to over £2.7million! The work is primarily through food banks, supporting the elderly, homeless and those most at risk from coronavirus.
