Getir’s partnership with Nisa leads to £30,000 charity donation

The sum was donated to London’s Community Kitchen to support a more sustainable and healthy London.

Getir, the pioneer of ultrafast grocery delivery, has donated £30,000 to London’s Community Kitchen (LCK) thanks to its long-standing partnership with Nisa. Funds were raised from sales of Co-op products sold through the Getir app. Marking the donation, Getir will be showcasing its support for local communities on Friday 23rd February 2024 at the Hilton London Wembley – unveiling a flagship transport asset purchased by LCK following Getir’s donation to the local London charity.

Getir began stocking Co-op products nationwide from November 2022 after a successful trial period in local London gstores. Funds were made possible through Nisa’s registered charity, Making a Difference Locally (MADL), which raises funds with Nisa partners and associated stores. A percentage of all Co-op’s own-label products sold go into a virtual fund for retailers and partners to donate. Additional funds can also be raised via in-store collecting tins, coin spinners, and clothing banks. More than £17m has been raised by Making a Difference Locally for community causes across the UK to date.

Getir has chosen to donate their raised funds to LCK, a local charity in London where Getir is headquartered, ensuring the money raised benefited the local community. The food charity provides access to free and affordable food to the most vulnerable communities in the city. Though the charity has a brilliant group of volunteers, more help is needed, which is why Getir is so proud to support and raise awareness.

Karthik Harith, General Manager for Getir UK, comments: “Partnering with Nisa has allowed us to expand our offering and, more importantly, given us a platform to give back to the community. The workers at London’s Community Kitchen work tirelessly daily to help the most vulnerable, and we are privileged to support them with our donation”.

Kate Carroll, Head of Charity at Nisa, said: “MADL makes a huge difference to communities across the UK and I’m absolutely delighted to see Getir using their MADL fund for such a worthwhile cause in London’s Community Kitchen. This funding will have a huge impact on those who need support most throughout these cold months and I’m delighted the partnership between MADL and Getir has contributed to such a positive community initiative.”

Taz Khan MBE, London’s Community Kitchen, said: “It’s a monumental moment for us, as this generous donation from Getir will enable us to purchase a van, a critical asset in addressing our growing transport needs. As we witness the challenge of food insecurity escalating in London, it’s more vital than ever for us to stand united. This van will be instrumental in our efforts to combat this issue. We urge everyone in London to join hands and pledge their support through our ‘Let’s Feed London’ campaign. Together, we can make a significant impact and offer much-needed support to some of London’s most vulnerable communities .”
