Marks & Spencer (M&S) has joined forces with Britain’s much-loved TV star, Joanna Lumley, and launched ‘Spark Something Good’. The initiative aims to inspire and motivate M&S employees and customers around the U.K. to take action for good causes by donating time to their local communities to help improve lives. M&S developed Spark Something Good following in-depth research, which revealed that getting involved in community projects enhanced people’s lives. The effort is part of Plan A, M&S’s groundbreaking eco and ethical programme. This High Street brand has a long history of giving something back to the community; in the past seven years, it has raised more than £50 million for charity partners and raised £15 million for Oxfam through its Shwopping project.
