Making a Difference Locally is a charity that helps local independent stores add value to their local community. Store manager of the Courthouse Green Nisa store, Tarven Singh, said: “We are part of the local community and we wanted to donate to a worthwhile cause in the area. We posted our nominees for the £1,000 award on our Facebook page and we’re delighted that our neighbours at Valley House are the worthy recipients, having received the most votes from our followers.”

Chief Executive of Valley House, LJ Winterburn, said: “We are delighted to receive this cheque for £1,000 from our neighbours at Nisa at Courthouse Green, Coventry. It’s great to know that our local community voted for us and thanks to Nisa, some of our service users will benefit from a trip to seaside. Our service users often struggle to find the means to get away and have a break, thanks to Nisa this will now be possible.”

Making a Difference Locally
Nisa’s registered charity, Making a Difference Locally, has been proudly supporting good causes since 2008 and has donated over £8.3 million to 11,000+ causes to date.
Making a Difference Locally (MADL) raises funds in Nisa partner stores from sales of Nisa’s Heritage own-label products and branded products featured on the consumer leaflet, which carry charitable donations from the suppliers. Stores are then able to donate funds raised to a local charity or good cause of their choice within a 10 mile radius, ensuring money raised by the community stays within the local area.
There are currently over 2,300 stores participating in the Making a Difference Locally initiative. For more information about the charity visit www.makingadifferencelocally.com or
