We’ve signed up to The Charity Shop Gift Card
We’re thrilled to announce that our charity shops are now accepting The Charity Shop Gift Card — the only nationally accepted, multi-retailer gift card that can be spent exclusively in charity shops.
The Charity Shop Gift Card is a not-for-profit initiative that has been developed and launched in association with the Charity Retail Association and helps people to give more sustainably, buy more consciously and support good causes.
We’re now selling and accepting it in our twenty-four charity shops across Leeds, which support the hospice in providing expert care for people diagnosed with terminal illnesses.
The scheme supports the growing second-hand revolution, which is helping to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill. It will also help us to raise more vital funds towards patient care at St Gemma’s.
Our Deputy Head of Retail, Chris Davey, says:
“To continue our vital work this year, we need to raise 72% of our running costs ourselves. The revenue generated in our chain of charity shops forms a significant part of this. Therefore, we are delighted to join the rapidly growing scheme and introduce more consumers to the charity shopping community, offering a way for customers to shop sustainably and support charity too.”
