I don't think anything goes to the charity. These are sold by Home Bargains on the 'cheap' as they are bought in bulk from wholesalers also cheap, so customers can benefit from buying these at a discount price.

Legally, the charity HAVE to receive a donation from each sale. It might be that whatever Home Bargains paid for them, a donation may have been made from that. Somewhere down the line a donation will have been made. I just hope it's not an insulting penny. I endeavour to find out.

^^^ I hope it's a reasonable sum donated, as it is a great cause! :-)

Just bought one for the GF. Thanks OP. Couldn't find anything about how much of the sale goes to charity, maybe a portion of the wholesale price

Have both, make a double board and use twice the letters, lol

Any form of financial support for these type of charities is a positive so heat from me. Personally though, I prefer to contribute directly.

Nothing stopping you or I doing both

Is it not the case that the manufactures forward a lump sum donation to the charity when they agree to support it? E.G. If they agree to donate £1 per item and make 50000 items they donate £50000 to the charity before any are sold? It seems near impossible to have a system that flags every individual sale of a charity item prompting a small donation.

Well, it doesn't quite have much to do with your comment. Just saying I was fortunate to sell mine at the right time...

Sorry I wasn't implying you were profiteering it was just purely coincidental I put £50 and so did you!

Got a scrabble game gathering dust somewhere, so I think I'll just stick to my usual monthly contribution to cancer research

No problem. I'm pretty sure that's the rough amount that Home Bargains are donating to Charity. I'm also pretty sure that's the amount that the guy who bought it from me was expecting to go to charity.

Thank you for posting - just picked one up from Stockport.

Just bought one of these, was last one on the shelf in local shop. Had seen them the last few times I popped in but as I already own Scrabble, didn't need it. Then a birthday came up and I bought it as a gift. Excellent price, way cheaper than regular Scrabble board.

On the back of the one I bought the charity listed had an Australian website address so I wouldn't expect Home Bargains to be donating to them.
