We thought you might like to know what we’re up to.
What we're doing
Over the last two weeks, British Land’s Communities team has been working with our network of local partners to identify how together we can best support them. We will be sharing details soon.
Community Investment Fund
British Land, our parent company, has been able to re-deploy £250,000 from within British Land's Corporate Investment Fund, to directly help communities across the country respond to the impact of Covid-19.
British Land has also doubled its annual donation to Shelter to £50,000 to support its helpline, which has seen a sharp rise in calls from people worried about their jobs and homes as a result of the virus.
We're also planning to share news and updates about the fantastic community initiatives close to the hearts of our Teesside Park community.
For now, we very much hope you’re all staying at home, and that you and your families are safe and well.
We look forward to seeing you back at Teesside Park when the time is right.

The first hour of trading on Mondays and Thursdays is dedicated to the older and vulnerable customers. For NHS and Emergency Service workers this will be Tuesdays and Fridays. M&S ask their other customers to respect this request, as it's the kindness and support we show each other that will get us through this.
