Bermondsey residents are being invited to drop off quality clothes, books, toys and household goods at their local Safestore for their month-long ‘Great Donate’ challenge which aims to collect as much stock as possible for the disability charity Scope.
It is the fifth year that Safestore, the UK’s largest self storage company, has teamed up with Scope and donations are being accepted at all 97 Safestore branches, including Safestore Bermondsey in Old Jamaica Road, throughout the month of July.
The items will then be sold by Scope across its network of almost 240 charity shops located across the country, raising funds to support its work with disabled people.
Safestore Bermondsey manager Alex Blair said: “We are delighted to again be partnering with Scope for ‘The Great Donate’ challenge. We want as many people as possible to get involved by donating any good quality items, clothes and accessories that they no longer need so that they can be sold in Scope shops. It is a very worthy cause so we hope that residents in Southwark will be really generous.”
Sasha Philips, Stock Generation Manager at Scope said: “We are delighted that Safestore are taking part in Scope’s 2015 National Stock Appeal this July.”
“As well as going to Scope shops, people can drop off their donations at their local Safestore making it even more convenient to declutter and donate.”
“All profits from the sale of donated items will go towards Scope’s work to support disabled people and their families to live the lives they choose.”
The nearest Scope charity shops are in Camberwell, Peckham and Lewisham
