Following a meeting with St Catherine’s Hospice we are delighted to announce that we will be supporting them with their blue bag scheme. We have found many a times that when a tenant vacates they leave behind perfectly good items that before now we have disposed of.
We first struck up communications with St Catherine’s Hospice using the wonderful world of social media and we followed them on Twitter. We then received an invite to their lunchtime seminar held back in July. Ciaran Grace, Senior Lettings Consultant attended as a representative of the office and it was here that Ciaran came up with the idea of supporting their blue bag scheme. In order for this to be a success we will be providing all tenants who give notice a blue bag and a list of items that the hospice are unable to accept in order to minimise the amount that is disposed of by St Catherine’s.
Tenants will also be asked to complete a form that will be placed inside the bag so they can make their donation go further with Gift Aid. Gift Aid makes any donations worth 25% more but doesn’t cost you a penny.
St Catherine’s Hospice currently has 13 shops in and around Crawley and stock is running low. If you have any items that you wish to donate please contact the office on 01293 735000 or pop it down to your local St Catherine’s Hospice shop.
