Richmond online retailer hands over donation to Save the Children after record year

An online retail group based in Richmond has raised £5,390 for Save the Children.

The money will go towards helping children and families who have been impacted by the global coronavirus pandemic.

YOLO handed over a cheque to Alison Iles, North Yorkshire shop leader volunteer for Save the Children, at their offices.

YOLO started in 2014 has had a record year with sales reaching £2m, which has meant they have had to double their team to keep up with demand.

They operate different online brands, including a tea subscription business and Europe’s biggest hammock retailer.

Founder Scott Woodhead said: “We are so pleased to be helping Save The Children and want to thank our team, customers and suppliers for helping us raise the money which will make a huge difference to those impacted by the pandemic.”
