Compton Care shops will be offering customers a New Look voucher when they donate a bag of pre-loved clothing as part of a new, nationwide fundraising partnership, ‘Give back, feel good’.
The partnership, jointly run by New Look and national charity, Hospice UK, launched on 23rd September to encourage people to donate high quality pre-loved clothing to over 80 participating hospice shops across the UK in return for a discount code, redeemable in a local New Look store.
The ‘Give back, feel good’ partnership will initially support over 40 hospices across the UK with much needed donations, that will help provide care and support to people at the end of life.
At Compton Care we provide free care and support for local people living with incurable illnesses and their families, supporting them to navigate every aspect of life with an incurable condition. Our care is tailored to each person and focuses on providing families with the tools, encouragement and support they need to live a good quality life.
Three of our charity shops are taking part in the project – Blackheath, Cradley Heath, and Retail Plus in Wolverhampton city centre – providing the opportunity for members of the public to receive a discount for brand-new purchases at New Look after having a clear out of unwanted belongings.
Paul Arnold, Compton Care’s Retail Operations & Support Services Manager, said: “We are delighted to be involved with the Hospice UK x New Look stock donation project. It’s a really easy way for donors to both support Compton and receive a discount for their local New Look store, and we hope that the project encourages plenty of donations to our participating shops. Every sale generated across our network of shops goes towards funding extraordinary care for our patients within the community.”
Hospice UK’s Director of Income Generation, Catherine Bosworth said: “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.”
