Carrier bag charge - where does the money go?

The Entertainer is donating the net* proceeds of its carrier bag levy to Together for Short Lives.

Together for Short Lives is the leading UK charity for all children with life-threatening and life limiting conditions and all those who support, love and care for them.

Together for Short Lives will distribute the carrier bag levy charge to its 38 children’s hospice members across the UK in proportion to their expenditure on children’s palliative care, on a six monthly basis.
