What are the Store Wars?

The idea is simple – teams of staff from different companies go into Barnardo’s charity shops to compete with each other to win. How do they win? By increasing store sales by the most amount in just one day of trading.

We are searching for 30 teams made up of staff from different companies across the UK to take part. Each team will go into a different Barnardo’s shop within their region for one day and will use their initiative, imagination and business acumen to increase takings in store on the day. How your team does this is up to you, but we can give you tips and pointers, and support you every step of the way.

Since the launch of Store Wars over 10 years ago, we have raised over £1million and worked with companies big and small across the UK, helping create team spirit, stronger relationships and fun outside of work for all staff.

Benefits for your company

We are offering this amazing opportunity to your company for a £1,000 donation (plus VAT) per team (of up to 10 people). This money will go directly towards our work with children and young people in our projects. Furthermore, we can work with you to allocate the money to a specific project of your company’s choice within your region for maximum local impact.


This is an opportunity to:

  • Fulfil CSR Objectives: Fulfil organisational and individual charitable objectives
  • Promote Strong Ethos: Promotion for your company through news media channels and social media
  • Promote Team Building: Build staff relationships, encourage effective team working and help staff unite around a common, meaningful cause
  • Make a Real Difference: to the lives of vulnerable children and families in your community


Get Involved

We are planning to hold this event throughout various dates in June and July 2017. We aim to accommodate flexibly for all teams who wish to take part.
