New Look offers discount to hospice supporters

Categories: Care, Community Engagement, and Featured.

Shoppers donating unwanted clothes to selected hospice shops can receive a discount in New Look stores until the end of September.

The fashion retailer is supporting hospice care by encouraging more people to donate goods to local hospice shops, in a scheme running in partnership with Hospice UK.

Anyone donating a full bag of donations to participating hospice shops will receive a voucher entitling them to 20 per cent off items.

Hospice shops all across the UK are taking part in the pilot initiative, including St Oswald’s Hospice in Newcastle, Royal Trinity Hospice in London, Hospice of the Valleys in Merthyr Tydfil, and Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care in Surrey.

Mark Axon, Retail Director of New Look, said of the scheme:

“New Look is very excited about this new partnership with Hospice UK to encourage our customers to donate their once loved clothes to their local hospice shop. As a company, we’re really keen to develop stronger links on our local high streets.

“We have a three-year commitment to fundraise for the amazing work of hospices around the UK and this new initiative helps us to take this to the next level, building stronger relationships in local communities and doing what we can to reduce the amount of clothing waste that ends up in landfill.”

Barry Young, Retail Operations Manager at Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care, added:

“We would like to thank New Look for supporting local hospice care so generously.”
