New Look is launching a new customer discount initiative to support hospice care by encouraging more people to donate goods to local hospice shops, and Hospiscare’s Heavitree shop in Exeter is one the shops chosen to pilot the scheme between 21 July-14 September.
The high street store will be offering a 20% discount voucher to anyone who drops in a full bag of donations at the Hospiscare shop on Fore Street, Heavitree in Exeter.
Under the scheme, running in partnership with national charity Hospice UK, donors will receive a voucher which they will be able to spend at New Look’s store in Princesshay, Exeter, which is only a short walk from the Hospiscare shop.
Hospiscare Head of Retail, Helen Hutter says, “We’re so pleased to have been selected to take part in this pilot scheme. We rely on good quality donations to raise vital funds for Hospiscare patients so any incentive encouraging people to donate items to our shop is great news for us!”
“New Look is very excited about this new partnership with Hospice UK to encourage our customers to donate their once loved clothes to their local hospice shop. As a company, we’re really keen to develop stronger links on our local high streets. We have a three-year commitment to fundraise for the amazing work of hospices around the UK and this new initiative helps us to take this to the next level, building stronger relationships in local communities and doing what we can to reduce the amount of clothing waste that ends up in landfill.“
Mark Axon, Retail Director, New Look
