The Falkland Islands Company along with other local retailers signed up to an introduction of a 5p charge on plastic carrier bags in 2016.
With the Community Matters Scheme we help local charities every month.
Set up in 2004, the Charity Committee has donated over £230,000 to various local charities, sporting groups and events. These have come in the form of monetary donations, prizes, purchase of equipment and sponsorships.
The Charity Committee have a dedicated Facebook page to showcase our support of these charities and we encourage members of the community to approach us if they believe we can be of assistance.
Today members of staff presented the Falkland Islands Museum & National Trust with a cheque for £2,000.00.
