Local fundraising can always do with a helping hand and for local charities, small donations can make a considerable difference to their ability to serve the community and continue the excellent work they do.
Bishop’s Move has a long tradition of supporting both national and local charities that actively benefit the communities they work within. Their ‘De-clutter & Donate’ scheme raises money for national charities such as the British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research UK, Sense and Chest Heart Stroke Scotland.
Currently supporting Chest Heart Stroke Scotland, Bishop’s Move Edinburgh has also chosen to team up with ‘The Button Box’, a local charity working within their area and directly helping the local community. Bishop’s Move’s popular ‘De-clutter & Donate’ scheme allows Bishop’s Move to provide support through donations received from customers that are collected on the move date and are then distributed direct to the respective charities.
Bishop’s Move Edinburgh branch are now working with Diane Janczyk and Clair McLaren, co-founders of the ‘The Button Box ‘supporting the Midlothian area. Bishop’s Move Edinburgh are collecting and helping to store donated items which is proving highly popular, producing large volumes of donated items which will directly benefit the branch’s local community.
This innovative charity looks to support families in the local community by collecting donations of children’s clothing all year round whilst holding events throughout the year, giving families the chance to access free clothing to support their growing families.
Their first event is scheduled for the 4th March 2017 and will be held at Bishop’s Move Edinburgh based in Penicuik, Midlothian. Strathesk Primary school are also assisting and have kindly offered to donate the use of their tables for this first community event.
“Building strong local communities is about understanding, appreciating, and caring for the people that live within them” said co-founder of The Button Box, Diane Janczyk.
Dave Mills, Bishop’s Move General Manager, Scotland, said:
“One of the reasons I think it is so rewarding for businesses and employees to help the local communities around them is that the results are so visible and significant. It’s inspiring to see the donations making a real difference that can be seen. As part of a nationwide company with branches throughout the country we want to ensure we remain focused on the local areas where we operate and feel part of these local communities.”
