Matalan 'to provide financial support' to Dhaka victims

We offer our condolences to all those affected by this tragic event and our thoughts and prayers are with the whole community.

Whilst we were not using any suppliers based in the building, as soon as we heard the news, we started working with our key contacts in Bangladesh to explore how we could support those involved.

We can confirm that we are working closely with the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers & Export Association (BGMEA) and our local team in Bangladesh to provide financial and other support to help those affected.
