New Look has launched a nationwide fundraising partnership, ‘Give back, feel good’, which offers a new customer discount initiative to support hospice care by encouraging more people to donate goods to their local hospice shops, and our charity shops in Sale and Stockport are two of the shops taking part.
The high street store will be offering a 15 per cent discount voucher to anyone who drops in a full bag of donations to our shops on School Road in Sale and on Great Underbank in Stockport. The shops are two of over 80 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 discount code, redeemable in a local New Look store.
It’s wonderful working with New Look on this project. It helps people declutter before Christmas 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. Ryan Perkins, Sales Development Manager at St Ann’s Hospice
Charity shops are a lifeline to hospices up-and-down the country, allowing local communities to support them to provide much-needed to care to those who need it most. We are really pleased to be working with New Look on the ‘Give back, feel good’ partnership, giving people the chance to raise vital funds, which hospices rely on to be able to offer outstanding care to the communities they serve. The pandemic has really highlighted the crucial role hospices play for people at the end of life, and their families. Hospice UK continues to support hospices across the country, working alongside the NHS, to make sure people get the care they need, now and into the future. Catherine Bosworth, Hospice UK’s Director of Income Generation
