GoGetters donates profits to local charity on Black Friday

Local food delivery company GoGetters donates over £1,000 of profits to local charities as a result of Black Friday.

In contrast to the usual tradition of offering discounts on Black Friday, GoGetters committed to donating a substantial sum of their profits on Friday to various local charities such as food banks and homeless shelters through their “Give Back Friday”.

“Whilst Black Friday is focussed on the deals and discounts across retailers worldwide, we want to shine a light on something a bit more important, our local communities.” Says Lee Nicolaou, founder of GoGetters. “The hearts of our towns, the high streets, the independent stores, but most importantly, the people. Our family, friends & neighbours we care for.”

The total donation amount of £1,150 will be shared across three local charities, Feed Up Warm Up – Hitchin, Open Door – St Albans and the Bishops Stortford Food Bank.

GoGetters are focussed on local restaurants and stores, local drivers and local support by putting the spotlight on independent heroes. The Essex-based platform was founded in 2016 by Owen Barrow and Lee Nicolaou. It delivers to 80,000 customers from 200 independent restaurants across Essex, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire.
