‘Donate Don’t Dump’ is the message from Michael Sobell Hospice charity (MSHC) as it launches a new campaign with BNI in Rickmansworth.
The campaign is to encourage people to donate their unwanted items to help make a difference to those receiving specialist palliative care across Hillingdon, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire.
It invites employees along with the general public to have a wardrobe clear-out, fill up a bag or two with unwanted donations and take them to a donation station.
MSHC Head of Income Generation Caroline Caisley, who helped to launch the campaign, said: “This is a fantastic initiative for our local community and businesses to get involved in, and in turn helps us as a charity to secure the vital funding needed every year to ensure hospice care services provided at Michael Sobell Hospice can continue to support hundreds of families at a crucial time of need.
“We are thrilled our friends at BNI have come on board, as our very first company to house a donation station and hope to see a flock of donations which we can turn into money via our three Charity shops in Northwood, Eastcote and Ruislip.”
