Poundland’s plastic carrier bag sales raise £670k for Macmillan Cancer Support

How much are the 5p per plastic bag sales worth to charity? Poundland has just donated £670,000 from them to Macmillan Cancer Support.
Its partnership with its national charity partner has now raised over £2 million.
Indeed, sales of plastic carrier bags have raised even more for charity at Poundland. The company will also make a one-off donation to UCL Dementia Research charity and a donation to its Welsh charity partner, Cancer Research Wales. This will bring the total that the business will give to charity from carrier bag sales to almost £800,000.
