Last week, we asked our team to bring in their unwanted clothing and household items so that we could donate them to Martin House Children’s Hospice, based not far from the CE offices in the North of Leeds, West Yorkshire.
John Haigh, corporate fundraiser at the Hospice left us a lovely email message today:
“Many thanks for the kind donation of 12 bags of items for our shops, picked up this morning by our Volunteer Team. As I may have mentioned previously, we estimate that on average each donated bag can realise approximately £25 of retail value when sold on through our charity shops, so just this delivery amounts to some £300 of value to Martin House! Please accept this e-mail as our formal thanks from all at Martin House on this subject.”
We will look to continue supporting Martin House and our other chosen charities throughout the year.
