CHRISTMAS shoppers could be in with the chance of winning shopping vouchers when they donate a bag of clothes to Barnsley Hospice.

 

New Look on Cheapside, Barnsley has partnered with the Barnsley Hospice charity shop on Eldon Street to offer a 20 per cent discount voucher for shoppers who donate a full bag of unwanted clothing to the Eldon Street shop.

 

It’s all part of New Look’s national partnership with Hospice UK to encourage people to donate their pre-loved clothes so they don’t end up in landfill. 

 

Stephen Hatfield, retail manager at Barnsley Hospice, said: “We’re thrilled to be working with New Look on this fantastic initiative to inspire shoppers and encourage footfall at our Eldon Street shop. We are always on the look-out for

quality items, and all we ask is that you please make sure that the pieces you’d like to donate can be resold and loved again.”

 

Nigel Oddy, chief executive officer at New Look, said: “As a company, we really care about being kind to our people and to our planet, therefore we want to make it easy for our customers to recycle their unwanted clothes whilst helping to reduce the amount of clothing waste that ends up in landfill.

 

“New Look is very excited about this partnership with Hospice UK to encourage our customers to donate their once loved clothes to their local hospice shop.”

 

The promotion will run until January 13, excluding Christmas week when the charity shop will be closed from December 25-January 2.
