Charity Retail News Round-Up – Week Commencing 18.4.22
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’re also now going to 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:
Landlords to be forced to let out empty retail units
A great opportunity for pop up and temporary shops for charity retailers and independents – and perhaps collaborations too for larger units.
Volunteering in a charity shop
A nice piece about volunteering at an Ashgate Hospice shop in Chesterfield. Great publicity to help gain new volunteers
The £10 charity shop challenge
This is a great way to raise people’s awareness of the shops in your town – why not challenge your own supporters to share what they can buy from your shops for a set budget? Use a hashtag to bring together all the mentions on Insta or TIkTok and share the love!
New textile initiative announces BHF and Salvation Army as early sign ups
Other charities and interested parties are also being encouraged to sign up to Wrap’s initiative. The Textile Recycling Association has also joined up.
