Hospiscare is teaming up with fashion retailer New Look this Christmas to offer Exeter, Exmouth and Tiverton shoppers an extra big thank you for supporting the charity.
Following a successful pilot in the summer, New Look is launching a new customer discount initiative to support Hospiscare by encouraging more people to donate goods to their local hospice shops, and three of Hospiscare’s shops are taking part.
New Look will be offering a 20 per cent discount voucher to anyone who drops in a full bag of donations at the Hospiscare shops on Fore Street, Exeter; The Parade, Exmouth; and Gold Street, Tiverton before January 13. The shops are 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 Exeter, Exmouth and Tiverton, which are only a short walk from the Hospiscare Shop.
“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.” Meghan Booth, Business Development Manager, Hospice UK.
“It’s wonderful working with New Look on this project,” says Helen Hutter, Head of Retail at Hospiscare. “We were so pleased to be chosen as part of the pilot scheme earlier this year so it’s great that we’re able to have three of our shops taking part this Christmas. We’re grateful for all the support we get from people in Mid and East Devon, and this scheme is a great way for our donors to support Hospiscare and get a discount at their local New Look store.”
Every item bought in one of Hospiscare’s shops helps the charity to provide care for local people and their families living with a life-limiting illness.
Hospiscare shops stock a large selection of quality clothing, accessories and jewellery, homewares, small electrical items, bric-a-brac, books, CDs and DVDs, toys and games. There really is something for everyone.
