Could your business, school or organisation help increase the number of donations that come into our St Clare shops so we can raise vital income to fund our work by taking up our 25 Bag Challenge?

Our head of retail Fiona Eaton said: “From books and bric-a-brac, to clothing and furniture, donating pre-loved items that you no longer want or need is one of the easiest ways to support your local Hospice.

“Our shops need a constant supply of good quality, second-hand donations for our retail volunteers to sell to generate income for the Hospice, so as part of our 25th anniversary year, we are challenging our supporters to club together with colleagues or classmates to donate 25 bags of items to our cause.

“To make it even easier, we can supply your school or workplace with a special St Clare Donation Station, complete with plastic sacks to bag your items and Gift Aid forms to help make your donation to us go even further.

“Signing up for Gift Aid means we can claim an additional 25% from the taxman on the sale of donated goods, increasing the value of your donation at no extra cost to you. The average bag of donated good is worth £20 to the Hospice, or £25 if Gift Aided, so this really adds up.”

To take part in our 25 Bag Challenge, and request your St Clare Donation Station, call our retail team on 01279 454596 or email [email protected].
