Following a successful pilot in the summer, New Look is launching a new customer discount initiative to support hospice care by encouraging more people to donate goods to their local hospice shops, and St Ann’s charity shop in Sale is one the shops taking part.
The high street store will be offering a 20 per cent discount voucher to anyone who drops in a full bag of donations at St Ann’s shop on School Road in Sale before January 13. The shop is one of over 200 taking part in the programme across the UK.
Under the scheme, running in partnership with national hospice and end of life care charity Hospice UK, donors will receive a voucher which they will be able to spend at New Look’s store in the Square Shopping Centre, Sale, which is only a short walk from the St Ann’s charity shop.
It’s wonderful working with New Look on this project. It helps people declutter and do something useful with their pre-loved clothes. Every item donated to us helps us to continue to care for people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses, and we’re incredibly grateful for all the support we get from local people. This scheme lets them help us and get an even better deal from their local branch of New Look. Amanda Brooks, Head of Trading Company at St Ann's Hospice
As a company, we really care about being kind to our people and to our planet, therefore we want to make it easy for our customers to recycle their unwanted clothes whilst helping to reduce the amount of clothing waste that ends up in landfill. New Look is very excited about this partnership with Hospice UK to encourage our customers to donate their once loved clothes to their local hospice shop. Nigel Oddy, Chief Executive Officer, New Look
Following the successful pilot for this initiative over the summer, we are delighted to be rolling this out nationally. It is wonderful to have such as well-recognised brand as New Look working in partnership with us. Their support makes such a big difference in helping to increase public awareness about the care available to people with life-limiting conditions and their families.
