Charity Retail News Round-Up – week commencing 01.05.23
Each week we share with you our pick of the best stories on charity retail, shopping secondhand and the circular economy from the UK, Ireland and around the world.
We also add links to relevant Charity Retail Learning courses associated with each article to help you implement some of the ideas we’re sharing
Here’s our pick from the past 7 days
Pride Competition announced
Details of this year’s Pride display competition were announced this week. We loved your displays so much last year, we just knew we had to do it again! All the details are in the link – and if you’re looking for inspiration, our 2 for 1 offer means our Inclusion & Engagement VM webinar later this month is the place to go.
Secondhand market predictions
An interesting read from Thredup and the US, with lots of good links too. Lots of focus on commercial partnerships and not a mention of thrift shops! We need to make sure as a sector we hold our space.
“How to break up with fast fashion” author, Lauren Bravo, sings the praises of charity shops
An eco-friendly Coronation party – courtesy of your local charity shops!
Some great tips here for making sure there’s as little waste as possible during the weekend’s celebrations. Good to share with your customers.
You never know what you might find….
How lovely is this story, about a rowing club trophy found in the RSPCA Burton shop? Everyone’s a winner!
